We are in the airport headed to China. In just a few days we are going to meet our gift son. We have received such an unexpected present this Christmas. The timing of our adoption will always keep us mindful of the Father who gave his Son at great expense so that we could be adopted into his family. To the far corners of the earth God pursued us and now we get to share in his mission. It is crazy to love a child who doesn't even know you, but then again who of us knew God. He knew us and loved us before we were a glimmer in our parents' eye. My Heavenly Father's love was reckless and unrelenting. I am the most privileged of adopted daughters. May in due time Teddy also know the reckless love of The Incomparable Father.
Please pray for us to keep our focus on Christ as the next few weeks will be full of transitions and lots of unknowns.
