I saw this video on another adoptive family's blog and wanted to share it with all of you. Our Noelle was a "special needs child" (she had a minor heart defect which healed on "it's own" - glory be to God!), but we didn't START down the special needs / waiting child path. We though we wanted a "healthy infant" when we applied to our adoption agency. But God opened our hearts, we said "yes" to Him, and He gave us a MUCH MORE AMAZING BLESSING than we could have ever planned ourselves!!
And now we are adopting an older special needs child from Taiwan, a beautiful and precious girl named C--Y--. What joy to be on this path!! I never would have guessed that God would take us here! But you know what? We wouldn't change a thing!! :-)
How about YOU??? Is God quietly whispering to your spirit...to open your heart to the most incredible blessing of special needs / waiting child / or older child adoption?
(psst...if you take that first step, you will never regret it...then get ready for the Miracles!)
