So, my point is....don't underestimate what God has planned!!! Go for that baby if that is what fits into your family and your heart....there will NEVER be enough people to sign up for all the orphaned babies in Ethiopia.....BUT don't forget those children sitting around watching these babies leave months and months (and even years) before they get to!! It has been nearly a year since Shewit entered Hannah's Hope Orphanage, BUT the JOY and HAPPINESS in this boy's face tonight will erase all that time that he had to WAIT for the perfect family to come along!! I know God was smiling right along with Shewit tonight...His laughter and pure innocent JOY was evident to everyone around him!!! I'm forever changed every time I witness a homecoming like this.....
So, TODAY, LL turns 14 months old, she's been home 7 months TODAY, AND today she was reunited with her older friend from the orphanage. What a surreal moment to hug and kiss this boy AGAIN...the same boy I hugged and kissed in Ethiopia 7 months ago that had NO FAMILY coming for him!! Simply amazing!!!
I never dreamed when I left Hannah's Hope Orphanage for the last visit before flying out , that I'd see Shewit again some day AND that I'd have the privilege of watching him grow up...right down the road!! What a miracle!!
If you ever want to SEE and FEEL God's PRESENCE....Go watch a child come home at the airport with his forever family by his side!!! It is truly an amazing experience!! You'll witness something that only God could have orchestrated!! How else could this little boy, over the age that is typically adopted...a little boy completely orphaned with no one left to care for him...MAKE IT TO AMERICA?? It is GOD...GOD has big plans for Micah Shewit and I'm so blessed and honored to get to witness those through the years here locally!!
**Welcome home sweet little friend!! AND, I praise God for the Worton Family that said YES to adoption!! They said YES to orphan care....they said YES to Micah Shewit...they said YES to GOD!! (you can visit www.freedom4Micah.blogspot.com to read more about this journey if you'd like )
Happy Friday to you all....it's good to be back :) kj
