Just a word about John David this week: he is such a blessing and so very kindhearted. I stood with him at church yesterday and was overcome with God’s gift of him to us.
As only those who have gone through the adoption paper work frenzy know; it is VERY daunting! As I have struggled through it this past week John David has overheard me sigh or tell his dad how overwhelmed I feel ( I have been waking up at 4 am worried about what I need to do). Both times he has responded ” isn’t she worth it??” and I am soooo struck with his child’s faith in our God. YES she is worth it! I so thank my sweet merciful John David for being my cheerleader and encourager during this phase of the adoption! I am so thankful that God has given him a heart for children without a Mom and Dad and he is so very willing to be a big brother again. He has asked if I think she will “uhhhh” at us like Madeline!!! Haha! I told him I hope not but she will probably have a few tricks of her own to play on us:)
