Over the past few weeks I have played the moment she would see us in those photos for the first time over and over again in my mind. I wasn't sure how she would react. I thought she might be confused, quiet, a little scared, hopefully a little interested too. I thought the images would look a lot like this first one:
But you cannot imagine my overwhelming joy and surprise when he next reaction to seeing our family picture was this:
There are so many things to say about these two images. First, the woman she is with obviously loves her and seems even a little emotional about it. And Pearl obviously loves her. And look at the others cheering for her - they all want the best for her. They want her to be happy with a family. And then the next thing you might notice is the sweet children who are not seeing their families. They're curious but it's a little sad too. What dear children. And I cannot wait to embrace those woman and thank them for loving these children as their own. I will praise their names for ever more as I'm sure the angels of heaven do.
Here are the pictures:
