The moment I saw her picture my heart beat strong within me.
I’ll never forget it.
Her eyes, I thought. She needs to smile.
The gaze that stared back at my from the photo was flat and empty.
From that moment on
I was determined to find her and make her mine.
An adoption planned in heaven?
That precious one is now almost twenty and she lights up the world with her smile.
I thought I was done.
My mother heart was full.
But God had a different plan.
He showed me another little face.
Tiny and sad.
Withdrawn and obviously needing mother love.
From the moment I saw that video I was set on a path
to find her and to make her mine.
Today that little one is a growing thirteen year old.
Almost as tall as I am and learning in every area.
Amazing changes in her life.
Another adoption designed by God.
Whose face moves you?
Where ever you look.
The elderly –
the sick –
the abused –
tears falling like oceans while I write this simple blog.
Do you see the faces? Do you hear the cries?
I don’t want to ever become so comfortable that I somehow don’t see or hear.
While scrolling on the internet a few days ago
I saw another little face.
She was tiny – so very tiny-
and had no eyes or nose.
She was beautiful
to help her become all that God wants her to be.
My heart leaped to her
I long to have the means to scoop her up and care for her.
if not I
Yes, maybe you will see her need and respond with a “Yes”!
That’s all God ever asks of us
He is more than able to do what seems impossible with man.
Have you discovered this?
Whose face do you see today?
