As I scrolled down, my eye caught this picture below, and I was frozen. I recognized the outline of Thailand immediately, and I was glued to the gorgeous fabric and how stunning it looked on the stark black. I felt this wonderful--relatively new--feeling that can best be described as ownership. Kind of like--"Thailand! Yes! That's me! My baby is there!"
Then I saw the words above this picture, written by the artist, which said "This is for Rory in Oregon, who ordered this for a good friend who is adopting from Thailand." You will probably not be surprised to know that I burst into tears. This beautiful image is a symbol of a beautiful gesture that is so not lost on me. Rory and Lee have a huge heart for adoption--having been halfway through the process TWICE, then the Lord keeps surprising them with bio babies! :) Thank you both for this amazing gift. I cherish it already. My baby is there. And you KNOW that I would feel that way, and handpicked this for me. Wow.
I'm thinking that our whole family will soon be sporting similar versions.
