Brace yourself for some Hallie cuteness!! Today Hallie and I were laying on the bed snuggling when out of the blue she says "When I growed up, I want to be a Mommy". I told her that is awesome, that I wanted to be a Mommy when I was a little girl and I love being her Mommy. She got quiet for a few seconds then says, very somber, "Some little kids do not have a Mommy and I will be their Mommy". I was floored by her heart and compassion. I said, "You mean adopting just like what we are doing with Baby China, because Baby China does not have a Mommy to take care of her and I will be her Mommy". She looks at me and says, "Yes". And that was it. So simple, yet so profound. She gets it! At the age of four, she gets it! What God can do in the heart of a small child is amazing, no matter how young, God plants dreams!
"Learn to do what is right!
Seek justice, encourage the oppressed, defend the cause of the fatherless,
plead the case of the widow and the orphan"
I thank God for moments when I feel him kiss the air around us!
