and the red thread continues

Last night at work, a coworker came up to me and said, "Come with me, my patient knows you". I was like who? Anyway, this lovely family knows me from our blog, and is also friends with the Ladmans. She said she had been reading our blog for a while now. I was li,e Cool! They just got their beautiful son home from China and was having his cleft surgery. Apparently she emailed me months and months ago and I gave her the info to the plastic surgeons in Atlanta. She was very thanksful. We talked about China, adoption, special needs and stuff.

She had found Shelby's link from our Monday prayer time and had used her site as a reference for her sons surgery. Because of Donna's wonderful blogging, she decided not to send her husband home as she needed an extra set of hands.

So, we are chatting and who comes in? Another little China boy who also had cleft repair the night before. We all are using the same agency and these families were logged in as NSN and eventally switched over to SN! They gave me some great advice and info and these were definitely not moments I was expecting.

Its funny. On my way to work, I always say the same prayer asking me God to help me give the best physical, mental and emotion care, but I usually add a " God, give me a cool moment" and that He did!
