A most special visit

Last November, we saw LynnMarie ChunAi for the very first time. After we received PA we shared our news with many people. But one person found me. You see and please follow along, LynnMarie has been cared for by a very special lady. A special lady that took her into her foster home and cared for her. When LM was very little, she had some visually severe issues. A lady named Alycia emailed me and told me she has known about LM since she arrived at the foster home. In fact, LM touched her heart that she was very interested in adopting Chun Ai. After praying and praying about it, she felt LM was so young that she was not the right child for them, but decided to pursue a second adoption. Alycia has prayed for her since she was just a few weeks old and kept in touch with her caregiver and did everything she could to help with her treatment.

So Alycia and I emailed and facebook chatted and found out she would be in Atlanta. What are the chances that she would meet this baby that she has prayed for over the last year! We were excited to meet Alycia and her girls and we decided to meet at the aquarium where Sophia demonstrated what a great big sister she could be, Audra showed me what a mature high school graduate (well almost) she is and Alycia and I walked and talked. Alycia told me it was like all of this came full circle. You should have seen their faces when they saw LynnMarie. They did call her ChunAi for a while and that made me smile because you see, for a year, she was ChunAi to so many, prayed for by so many. Alycia reminded me that so many people around the world was praying for this sweet creature in front of me.

God has really orchestrated events since that Tuesday night that I learned about my sweet girl She makes everyone smile .


I received a wonderful email from LM's caregiver and had to share with you this line about our meeting this past week.

I was so thrilled to see that the Father gave her a splendid inside meeting with the love of her heart and her new family. All of us are one part of the puzzle of this little girl's life

She is oh so right...

She is SOOOO cute! I'm so glad you all are home! I've been keeping up and reading, just haven't been commenting on anyone's blogs lately as most of my reading has been done via iPod. Sorry about that! We've been praying though!
