Many thoughts fill my head on this last day in our home as a family of three. How will I get it all accomplished before leaving (I have to leave a clean house!)? Did we forgot anything? How is Anthony feeling right now? How can we pray for him? How will Grace adjust? How will we all adjust? God, please keep us safe and healthy. How will Anthony find his new home? The list goes on and on.
To answer some of my questions surrounding Grace, God gave us this precious conversation last night at bed.
Grace: "You will be Anthony's mommy too?
Me: Yes, I will always be your mommy, and now we will be Anthony's mommy and daddy too.
Grace (flashing a big smile of understanding): We are going to get him in China, and he will live here and you will be his mommy.
Precious girl! She has been dancing around the house proclaiming, "we're going to China" in song!
There have been many things on my mind about Anthony. One in particular lately, imagine the culture shock when he arrives here. The city itself is so different and the smells, a new home, new room, new family and friends. . . . Please be praying for him!
