This worry was for NOTHING! He showed us toy cars, made silly faces at us and rambled on and on. He really did not want the translator there, he just wanted to talk with us, which considering he was speaking Manderin, was well....entertaining at the least! The boys kept going to get cars to show him and even the model of the helicopter Chris works on. It all made his eyes sparkle. For 40 minutes that boy did not stop smiling! It was pure joy and for the next several days I don't think I could stop smiling either. When it was time to go the translator was trying to explain to him that Momma and Papa had to put brothers to bed and that it was late. That was ok with him EXCEPT he wanted us to come right back so we could talk some more.
We are indeed Momma and Papa to him already, that needed no translation!
Please continue to pray for God's timing and provision as we venture along this crazy and faith building thing called ADOPTION!
"Humble yourselves, therefore,
under God's mighty hand,
that he may lift you up in due time.
Cast all your anxiety on him
becuase he cares for you." 1Peter 5:6-7
