Just a thought

Abby was weighing heavily on my mind yesterday. I was just thinking about her and wondering if she has been born yet. (I have a hunch that she has) Every day I grow more and more in love with a little girl that I have yet to see. I needed something, a touch from Abby or something. God was faithful. While walking through the house, I went into Abby's nursery. I walked to her side window and looked out. We're blessed with a beautiful Japanese Maple tree (I think) that is in full bloom and pink and glorious. Well, as I stood there and looked, I began to notice hundreds and hundreds of ladybugs moving about and flying in and around the tree. For those who don't know, ladybugs are a sign of good fortune for China adoptions. It was a beautiful sight, and no doubt one that I would have never noticed had God not led Tony and I down this path to parenthood. It made me happy, sad, and peaceful. Our Abby is going to come home soon.

Ladybug, ladybug, fly away home, soon our girl will be here to no more roam! Okay, so I'm not a poet, it was the best I could do. I am so glad that God is faithful and that you were just that close to her yesterday.

Rett, that is simply amazing and brought tears to my eyes as I read it! Isn't it amazing how much we over look because we are always in a hurry, but when we stop and look around, God has placed beautiful things around us for a reason. God knows your longing for this little Abby girl and is keeping you close to her by giving you little reminders that she is on her way. We think and pray for her and you guys often. We love being updated on the progression of this journey.

I don't cry often, but that definitetly brought me to tears. I am so excited for you and tell everyone I know every chance I get that I'm expecting a new baby cousin from China soon! I would definitely say God gave that moment to you.
