my husband hit it on the nose......
WE are the lucky ones to have this little girl in our family!
We were talking the other night and Kris said "Isn't it interesting to think about how this whole thing went down in the pre-existence...
"how Mia maybe knew that she was going to be born half way around the world? and that she would have to wait for us to come and find her?She would have to hold on to a glimmer of hope that she felt in her heart, that there was more to life than what she was experiencing?"
We have been trying to teach Mia how to pray
(No, she is not really praying here, she actually
fell asleep and rolled off her bed and landed like so this is how we found her
when we went to tuck her in bed)
and Kris said "although she doesn't understand the physical aspects of praying....she surely knows how to pray."
"I am sure she prayed hard for the last 4 years, that her family would come and find her."
"Can you imagine the tremendous faith and hope this little girl must have had over the last 4 years to will her family to come find her half way around the world?"
At the first of this process when we were praying to know if this road was best for our family, and when we received so many answers to our prayers, we assumed they were just that....answers to OUR prayers, and yet really they were not only answers to our prayers but answers to this sweet little girls prayers.
She had perfect faith in her little heart that her family would come for her. She may have physical limitations, but her spirit is perfect....
so much more perfect than any of ours.
Therefore, although yes she is lucky to have a family now, we are really the lucky ones who get to be a part of her life and reap the rewards of her perfect spirit.
My brother sent me a letter the other day with awesome advice. He said "I am learning that whenever I follow the path He (Heavenly Father) sets, I end up in a better place than I ever could have on my own."
I learned this principle when Bree was born,
and I am learning it again now.
