And She Lived…











{November 8, 2008}   A Day Late, But What The Heck

I just found a flashback friday post that I wanted to take part in over at Storing Up Treasures In Heaven. She asked that If you are an adoptive family and have a referral photo…. please share it with us…. and put the link of your post below, so we can all visit your blog and see the beautiful children God has given you

It’s perfect timing for this post in our home because tomorrow will be the day that Meechi has been home with us for a year and a half.

It’s hard to believe that it was almost two years ago that we received that first photo of Meechi. The first thing we noticed was his huge smile. My husband made the comment that any kid that could smile like that while living life in an orphanage had to be a happy, playful little guy. I wasn’t sure about that, but I did see a smile that held a lot of personality. I saw eyes that sparkled with life and joy.

We had friends and family that tried to convince us not to accept his referral. We heard things like “he doesn’t look healthy,  he’s so pale” and “look at his hair, it’s so thin and patchy”. None of their words got to us though. We knew. Somehow we just knew that this boy would light up our lives like no other. He has done just that. The magic of his smile and laughter, the beauty of life and love in his eyes, have lit up our lives and brought us joy beyond what we imagined.

Oh! and let’s not forget about his golden skin and massive head full of hair! Pale? Thin patchy hair? HA!
