God has been revealing his plan to me in so many ways lately. I find it incredibly awesome each time.
I could seriously write and write on the many ways God has revealed himself to our family lately…but I will simply point out an awesome story.
November 5, 2008, our daughter was born. Kenny and I were not in place to adopt. We were not in a good place at all. God had a plan for us and for Mia.
A NEW friend I just met on an adoption forum, had revealed to me that she had reviewed our little girls file when she was 10 months old. She had 2 reports on our little one from 2 different IAP’s…one was very optimistic and one being very pessimistic. The pessimistic doctor said that they didnt believe she would ever be able to walk. With a saddened heart, they felt they couldnt accept this little girl. This family felt God wanted them to be praying for our little girl and they did. We thank this family for praying for our little Mia until we could get our lives back on God’s plan and get to her.
We recieved her reports and videos. Guess what…oh can she walk..talk..dance..sing..run…jump and play!!! She is full of laughter and charm.
As of December, she was only slightly delayed on a few different skills. Since we have pursued our little Mia, she has completely caught up and is no longer delayed at all.
I believe God has been saving her for our family. He knew she was our daughter and we would eventually get on the track of her adoption.
I am so thankful for my NEW FRIEND for opening up to me and sharing this part of Mia’s story, that God wanted us to know.
We named our precious new daughter, Mia Grace, Mia after hearing the way her first name was pronounced in Korean and Grace because it is by God’s Amazing and Saving Grace that we were able to get our lives right with him and onto the process of finding another great blessing of a child.
But it is great honor knowing, that the first mother to pray for her was also named Grace.
