Six many changes!

Six months ago we looked into the eyes of a scared little orphan girl and 
at that moment our lives would forever be changed.

June 1, 2010 
was a day we will forever remember when the Lord 
brought Lia into our family and continued to work in our lives 
in ways we could have never dreamed.  He created a love within our hearts that we
didn't even know existed and brought with it an incredible joy.  
Wondering for 18 long months whether we had 
really heard God speak clearly, it was on this day that we wondered no longer. 
We had without a doubt heard His still small voice and there was no mistaking
the fact that we could have easily missed this moment.  
I praise Him today for not giving up on us 
as we continued to seek and pray for His will while our baby girl waited a little longer
for a family to love her.  Oh how I wish we had been there to love her
when she was younger, but God knew the perfect moment when all of our hearts
would be ready to fall in love. 


Orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names.
They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. 
It is easier to pretend they're not real before you hold them in your arms. 
But once you do, everything changes.
