Last October I started reading the book,
One Thousand Gifts.
The idea is to record the gifts
for which you are grateful
until you get to one thousand.
I'm sad to say that I stopped at 69.
I only recorded them for a week or so.
Imagine the volume had I continued.
A year ago this month,
a new baby girl made it home.
Read about it here.
In my journal I wrote,
A new baby girl and her mommy on American soil
and family at the airport to greet them.
Huge smiles make me smile and I am thankful.
Alisha's greatest desire next to serving Jesus
was to have a child.
God put it on her heart to adopt a child from Ethiopia,
a part of the world where children rarely make
it to their 5th birthday.
When God called Alisha to make a difference
in the lives of children, she had no
idea that Mary Grace would be her gift.
(A year ago)
The adoption process was longer
than she had anticipated with constant delays.
A paper is missing... the court is not in session...
one thing after another.
Finally after almost 3 years,
little Mary Grace has a permanent home.
(This is now)
Is she not adorable!
Have you ever seen any eyes more beautiful?!
She is truly a gift.
