I had to post the e-mail my husband wrote me today...warning...it is a tear jerker. I think his love and support of this sweet child has made me fall in love with him all over again!
Some other thoughts on adopting Anela and her potentially having special needs:
1) If someone would have looked at Charley’s or Georgia’s file, they would have seen some abnormalities or special needs. I couldn’t imagine reviewing their “files” before they were a part of our family and deciding not to take the risk of them having special needs or unknowns.
2) Did God review our “file” to see if we had any issues or risks before he adopted us into his Kingdom. What if God passed by every person’s file that wasn’t perfect, none of us would be saved. God didn’t wait till we were perfect, without flaws, or had no risks. We needed a Savior when we weren’t perfect so we could be saved by his grace and loved by him...just like these children need parents who will accept them and love them even with their flaws and risks. What an example of Christ!
