I have written about this story many times already, but it happens to be one of my favorite adoptions stories ever! The world of adoption seems to be filled with "red threads". There are a few families that are "that" family to me. Families who I silently watched their journeys to their daughters. Families who brought me one step closer to our own journey. The fact that God would use me to be "that" family to anyone is so humbling and exciting.
If you don't know the story...Jennifer and I grew up in the same hometown, but never knew each other. (She doesn't live here anymore). She was in the process of building a house and wanted to use brick floors. She did an internet search for "brick floors" and my blog came up! (I had blogged throughout our building process.) I didn't know, but Jennifer started following our blog. She followed us all the way to China to get Wesleigh. The seed of adoption had been planted. By the time she reached out to me, their family had already decided to adopt from China!! There are now 3 other children who have come home from China in her community! Yay, God!! Jennifer has become a precious friend to me, and a reminder that you never know what God will use...you just have to be available for Him to use it!
I love this picture. It represents where this amazing story began...brick floors :)
