...and then there's B. [PHOTO REMOVED]
The one and only hesitation I have about adopting the child that He placed on our lap is B....the child he placed in my heart.
Yesterday's email reminds me of my dream to adopt him:Hello lovely and sweet mom! [this is exactly how my other kids greet me] Haw was to day? Mom I miss my sister and brother. I miss you soooooooooo much. Mom you know you come common day? Mom I love you so much mom haw was dad. I think our family. Mom I see your photo in my bed mom I want to you com digital camera. Mom we will celebrate our new year after 1 month. It is known as Enkutatash. Mom I miss Solomon. Now finished school. Mom I want to skip [skype] with you.mom I am sad because my friend getaneh go soon America. Mom you gat my later? Now my email is work. Now I have puppy god [dog] she name is jerry she is the boy. To day see you in facebook. Mom God is love and God bless you! You son B Moore
Getaneh is the boy pictured above. I've been in contact with his mom - he'll be leaving Kolfe in the next month or so. Solomon left about a month ago. B's friends are leaving and he's still there...which breaks my heart.
I don't know how this story will end. In many ways I feel like I'm in a love triangle - torn between two precious children. But reality is that's not the case, to imply that I have a choice to make would deny the sovereignty of God. God alone weaves families together. HE is penning this story and HE already knows what our family is going to look like a year from now and ten years from now. I love that. I rest in that. So while this story is filled with suspense for me, God has already written it. We just need to turn the page to find out what happens. I am just so thankful that he's allowing us to play a role in this chapter. I can't wait to see what happens!
