Our little Peaches had been abandoned and was now an orphan. She was living in far western Ethiopia, in a town called Gambella. What would her life be like?
During this same time, a year ago, God was teaching us a lot about patience. Though we certainly were not very good learners. He was working in our little girl's world to bring her to us. He was working in our world to bring us to her. Looking back now, His timing was perfect.
Adoption is amazing. It can take a little girl from a hopeless, poverty-stricken life to a home in Nebraska where they serve bomb pops on nice summer evenings. Through the miracle of adoption, God unites a homeless girl with a family that has room for more. He brings the lonely into a home and fills that home with joy and fills the lonely heart with hope.
How "cool" it is that a bomb pop can turn our eyes to God and once again see our story in a whole new way.
His web is ever spinning, ever bringing worlds together. Holding us so that we rest securely in Him. God we worship You.
