Two Years Ago I Saw THIS Face


Two Years ago I saw this face in a hosting listing.




The hosting director had been in Ukraine in March and met a few new kids.
This little guy was new to the orphanage.

My heart just stopped.  I knew at that moment that was my child.

We chose this face, prepared for weeks to host him, and then found out he was too young to get a visa!

We were devastated!  "My" boy couldn't come!

We went on to chose 2 other boys to host, and it was the craziest thing how they both ended up with paperwork issues preventing them from coming.  It was super frustrating!

The 3rd boy we chose was the last boy left on the listing, 2 weeks before arrivals.

Of course the last boy left was this face

   

Funny how things worked out.

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life; but those who make their journey home across time and miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them,are carried on the wings of destiny; and placed among us by God's very own hands. --Kristi Larson
