Lily has started asking tough questions about God and her birth parents. Through her tears, she recently told me she wished she knew her birth parents and wanted to be with them and us. She talked about how sad it makes her that she can’t remember her foster mom. My heart broke, as I listened to her pain.
I talked to her about her birth parents and how God brought her to us. I could not hold back the tears as we prayed for them. What a gift they gave us!
It makes me think of God’s incredible gift. Because of His great love for us, He gave His one and only Son, so that anyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.
He adopts those who are without hope and without a home and makes them His children!
After we dried our tears, Lily asked if we could go through her box of baby stuff. Her foster mom gave us a box full of keepsakes and baby pictures when we went to South Korea to bring Lily home. What a treasure!
