While playing with Eli near the Christmas tree, the song Silent Night came on. I listened to the words and thought about the baby Jesus that cold night so long ago, so new, and I immediately thought of our baby. I wondered about what he was left in and was it cold and was it day or night. I thought about his birth mother as I often do. Then all of a sudden it occurred to me that Eli must have been conceived in May, at about the same time that God layed Ethiopia on my heart. I immediately started crying as I thought about how miraculous it's all been and how wonderful God is! Thank you God for the blessings of my children and my husband.

  1. Gina,

    Isn't it amazing how God weaves together our time frames :) I was just looking back at my blog and the very first entries where I posted we were adopting. I noticed that I had said it would be about 2 1/2 years before we would be completely through the process. It was almost two and half years exactly when we were in Ethiopia. Isn't that amazing... Isn't He amazing. God moves even when we are too blind to see it. I love when he opens our eyes to his knowledge!!! Hope you all had a very blessed Thanksgiving!!! Love, Kim
