I have been going through my pictures from the beach, Cincy and Julianne’s bday celebration (that is next) and I am mesmerized by this pic of Madeline….
it speaks volumes to my heart….
I wonder what she was thinking…
it shows the hurt that lives in her…
the deep thoughts she processes…
they are always deep thoughts…
ones you would never believe a 5 year old could think
My work as her mother is hard….
but I love her so deeply it hurts…….
she is worth more than she will ever be able to imagine!

it is a wonder how deep they really do think. I often wonder what's going on in her little mind. Her thoughts are so different from our biological son's. He's carefree and in his happy little world. A lot of days are tough. Have you read the Connected Child by Karen Purvis? I ready it before we left for China, but our small group is doing the study now. It really a great study. she is so wise about children from hard places. It's really made me re-think some of the things I learned before we brought her home.
You are right…this picture seems to look deep into her soul. What an amazing responsibility God has entrusted you with! She is precious!
Oh how I wish we could read their soul & mind. I know your heart aches for your sweet little girl. So thankful God guides us along the adoption path!!
Beautifully written, beautiful picture, beautiful child.
I can't think of a better mother to hold Madeline's hands through the toughest of times… God chose the perfect Mama to love her forever!!
This is a poignant and beautiful photo of your beautiful girl!!!
That's absolutely beautiful. The photo is so precious.

I SO Get that!!! I see the same look in EK some days. It is hard too and all the more reason I love her so fiercely!!! Blessings and love to you!
Wow, haven't checked in on your blog for awhile. that speaks to my heart! And I agree with diana, God chose the perfect Mama for her!
She's definitely deep in thought. God couldn't have chosen a better mom and family for this sweet girl. It's a beautiful picture of her.
