An Amazing Love Story

Love at first sight:

Meeting my girl in her orphanage in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia,
January, 2009.

Amazing how much love a heart can hold; love that you never even knew you had. 

 Isn't Love crazy good?

How could you not love that precious little girl? She is just adorable...beautiful.I never thought I could love anyone like I do my kids. Then my sweet little grandson was born...even better and more love. I do understand the love you are feeling for your daughter. It is amazing that mothers have such unending love. Many blessings, Karen

This reminded me of what a dear friend once told me. We were just folding laundry (I'm her mother's helper/ babysitter), but what she said has stuck with me forever.

She told me that when she first discovered each of her pregnancies, she wondered how she could love another child enough without sacrificing some of the love she had for the other(s), but that each time God just gave her more love to give. I love that. What an awesome God we serve!

Hope your day is a blessed one!
