3 Years With Janie!!

On this day 3 years ago we walked into the Civil Affairs building in Changsha China to meet this precious child. She was so upset and scared. Our hearts broke for her pain and fear of leaving everything she had ever known her first 3 years. Six months prior to this day I received her medical file late one evening from our social worker saying she was ours, "we need your answer in 3 days". Her medical file was not complete and left us with many unanswered questions regarding her health and mental capabilities.I was praying in the early morning in anguish over this sweet child questioning our ability to take this leap of faith....the thought "watch this miracle unfold before you" flew through my mind. I remember sitting there stunned questioning if God had just spoken to me....first off I don't talk to myself in 3rd person. That one flash of God carried me until we met this precious child 6 months later. And yes I have watched this miracle unfold before me. God mightily chose this perfect child for our family and mightily showed me in the early hours that morning that He is in charge. It has been my privilege to follow Him in this journey.
Happy Family Day to our precious, bossy, funny, animated, show stopping, whiny, happy, smiley, performing, boss of crazy outfits, so very loved Janie!!
