Lacking


One night while I was in Africa - my girls set the table for four to include me in their evening...


They made me a plate and even had a conversation with me and asked me questions.

Laura texted me in Uganda and told me about it... and I wept. A little from missing them and a little from the overwhelming joy that comes from the blessings I have.

I thought about this today while I was thinking about the people who were attacking us lately. And I really felt God saying "They attack because they lack."

They lack love. Compassion. Relationships. They lack passion. Happiness. Warmth. But mostly... they lack God.

And they surely don't have this...


Thankful to not be lacking at all, but instead overflowing with abundance...

I have NO idea who is harassing your beautiful family, but please know your blog gives my family hope. We are mid adoption with a wonderful little boy waiting for us in Uganda. Seeing your family, gives us hope, that if we hang in there on this process, we too will have the greatest blessing we could ever have, our child. This is your family, there is no reason to defend your decision to adopt two of the most beautiful ladies I have ever seen. Just enjoy them. You survived the adoption journey, which is a feat in and of itself. Take care, and know that your blog holds many families waiting, together.
