Uncharted Territory

I think parenting itself is pretty much an unknown - we somehow manage to learn as we go with it and so far so good. We haven't broken her yet!

But as Meron starts to get older we're beginning to dip our toes into some real uncharted territory - talks about adoption, orphans and the incredible way God brought our family together.

Don't get me wrong - we've talked about it a LOT with her for a LONG time. The difference is now she is totally understanding and processing what we're saying.

Just the other day - completely on her own - she pointed at Ethiopia (not just Africa - directly at Ethiopia) on a map and said:

"Mommy and you flew all the way here to bring me home."
She gets it. She really gets it.

And we are so thankful for things like that book up there - it's so awesome and cool to have something like a book about it to help make it part of our "normal."

I know things can't be all peaches and cream all the time. But is it bad for me to want it to be for my girls?
