Tears of Joy

Going through my Google Reader just now, I found myself crying tears of joy. You see, my sister Bambi, her husband Adam, and their family had been trying for over two years to adopt a beautiful little girl named Vania from Haiti when the earthquake hit. Vania was missing for days. It was torture to not know what had happened to her; I can't even imagine how my sister handled it. But, by the grace of God, she was found (and all of the orphans in her orphanage were also located). With much finagling all of the children who had adoptions in process were sent to the US, so now Vania is with Bambi and Adam.


Why the tears of joy? Well, as if that weren't enough, my sister wrote a post yesterday on her blog Haiti or Bust about a wonderful little boy that I know who took it upon himself to get his class to send "Welcome to America" cards to Vania. I didn't know about this at all. I had asked for prayers for my family and Vania, but I didn't know how far reaching this request would be. Please click on the link and read the story. It will restore your faith in the human race.

I am verklempt.

Gosh she is so cute and precious! There is good in all things...sometimes it just takes a while...
