Yesterday morning, on Ellie’s birthday, I asked,
“Wouldn’t it be SO COOL if the Lord brought us a foster baby on your birthday?!?”
She enthusiastically nodded her head and grinned from EAR to EAR!
And then, two hours later, on the way to a birthday lunch/swim party at my sister’s house - we got a call - and Baby E joined our family in the afternoon!
To quote Ellie: “This was my best birthday EVER!!!!”
We will always weep for the “why” of foster care, but we will also rejoice that we are able to care for these precious lives when the Lord brings them into our family - until they are able to go home.❤
