A Very Special Child

Amaya was sitting at the computer with me a little while ago and she saw the picture of Hailee on the sidebar. She said "oh Mom, look at that beautiful baby". I explained to her that Hailee looks like a baby, Hailee is the size of a baby, but little Hailee is the same age as Paige.

Amaya then looked at me with the saddest eyes and ask me why a 4 year old would look like that. I explained to Amaya that she has been living in an orphanage and she hasn't been able to get the care she needs to grow healthy like them. I then told her though that we have a very awesome God and that God found an incredible mommy and daddy that is fighting to bring home Hailee like we fought to bring home Jaxson.

Amaya started grinning from ear to ear and then she said "Mommy, God is going to help us find a very special child to bring home too". Oh I pray God helps us bring home another very special child. It brings tears to my eyes knowing that my 5 year old knows how much God loves these kiddos.
