It was so beautiful – a flower lover like myself was in heaven.
And Theodore loves his stroller- that is unless BLAKE touches it.
Well, when we returned the crying began.
We danced to All Sons and Daughters (thanks Gary Bailey!) on Pandora until he fell asleep.
We talked today at how he is like a 2 year old version of Job. He has lost what few material possessions he had (be it Hello Kitty) and a bed to sleep in. Theodore has lost his friends and what to him were his siblings. He has lost the closest thing to a mom and dad. And he is physically not feeling well- bringing a cold and congestion with him.
He woke up angry in night- I would be angry too.
But Jesus looked at them and said to them, ‘With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.
He has no idea what God has in store.New clothes, sippy cups, his own clean bed, siblings that will adore him, friends to run with, extended family to spoil him, good food to eat, free open space to roam, ducks to waddle after, puppies to chase, kittens to cuddle.
But most of all, God’s love in the flesh- a father and a mother that love him unconditionally. A father and a mother that CHOSE him. That chased him all the way around the world . We will prove it with God’s strength day after day.
(Tomorrow we pick up little man’s passport and head on a fast speed train that will take us 3 and 1/2 hours to Guangzhou where we’ll be for a week)
