Story of my Life by Oatsvall Team | Edit Post
I haven't had a chance to download pictures yet, but I did want to share what has been going on the last couple of days ... Wednesday Suzanne and I went to M'boro to share Katie's journey and tell them about the amazing children in Uganda ... The women were so gracious and moved ... I met a couple of sweet ladies WAITING for their daughters from China ... I was moved by these two women and their faithfulness to walk this very long journey ... I have always thought of all the precious little girls in China that need a MOMMY/DADDY to wait ... And then my sweet 3rd interim care angel Lola Belle (Now forever named Isaiah) came w/ her mommy and I got to hold, cuddle, and kiss her sweet face ... Melissa (Isaiah's mommy) and Linda (Elly's mommy) are two precious women in my heart ... Becoming an interim care mommy was such an honor and a blessing the Lord allowed our family to experience and I will never forget these two women's faces when I saw them holding their daughters ... Thank you Melissa for coming and bring Isaiah for me to see .... (I will totally post pictures of her soon per Melissa's permission).
Now on to Thursday night ... What an evening of blessing by some amazing singer/songwriters .... This night was to benefit a couple traveling in a couple weeks to pick up their precious daughter from China ... Many came and surround them with love ... I had only recently met Kelly and felt honored they asked me to share about adoption at the benefit ... They are an amazing couple who have waited almost 3 1/2 years ... FAITHFUL is the first word that comes to mind when I think of all they have endure during this process to bring home their daughter home and it reminds me of so many of blog sisters out there WAITING (I admire you all)... Then during a musical set, one artist said on stage that he and his wife had been talking back and forth about adopting for a few weeks and tonight just sealed the deal ... DID YOU HEAR ME ... Another child will get a family ... LET'S CHANGE THIS NUMBER -147 MILLION ORPHANS .... I am ready to print a t-shirt that says like NO ORPHANS LEFT ...PRAISE THE LORD !!!!
Off to package t-shirts and hats ... YOU GUYS ROCK .... Just wondering if I created a t-shirt that said "YOU BETTER RUN AWAY NOW ... I AM GOING TO TALK ABOUT ORPHANS" ... who would buy one ???? hee hee
Have a blessed weekend friends !!!!
