I just had a chance to read the comments on the blog and wanted to say thanks for all of your kind words, prayers, encouragement and support. I am not sure I deserve such praise. I am just a mom who loves her children and a woman with Christ's spirit living inside her heart. He should get all the glory for leading me to this incredible boy and allowing this miracle to happen.
Please pray for Christian's birthparents and especially his uncle, aunt, cousins and sweet grandmother. I am especially concerned for the aunt and uncle that raised Christian those first 7 years. I can still hear in my head his uncle sobbing as we got into the van and pulled away the other day. I think it was the hardest thing I have ever done. I felt like I was taking their son away again...even though I know in my heart that this is not only what Christian wants but what is best for him. I am so thankful that his Chinese family (now a part of our family) wants the best for Christian. They are wonderful people who love him dearly and my heart breaks for what they are going through. I pray that knowing he is alive and well now will bring them peace. I will be sending them updates and photos regularly so they can be a part of his life again. I believe the Lord has big plans for Christian and his work on earth has just begun.
In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. -Matthew 5:16
