The mess maker at the bottom of the heap entered the room, and we have never regretted scooping her up and taking her home.
You all know Ellie:
Vivacious, tenacious, loving, caring, loud, and lovely. Full of compassion, full of energy, full of joy!
From the first moment I saw her face, I felt connected in some way. I could never explain that feeling to anyone, except other adoptive parents. We trusted Jesus...that he was calling us to her. I didn't even know what a lipmeningocele was. We did NOT include spina bifida on our "checklist" of needs were willing to consider.
But JESUS knew~
We needed her to make our family all that He wanted it to be.
Happy Gotcha Day, Ellie!
I am so glad Jesus gave you to me!!!!!
