Caleb, giving his toys, sharing his love!
Tucking my 4 year old into bed, we snuggled and prayed. Bedtime brings a sweetness to the surface and spills into my heart. The other night, we talked about adoption, our adoption, and began to dream. With a sparkle in his eye, he told me his plan.
Mommy, when we bring our children home from Ethiopia, we'll teach them about Jesus. Then, when they grow up they will go back to Ethiopia and share Jesus with their family. Everyone in their family will know about Jesus and tell everybody else. The whole country will know about Jesus so they will have to be missionaries and go to other countries.
My young son, I never quite looked at adoption in this way, through the faith filled eyes of a child. I've heard it said "adoption won't change the world, but it will change the world for a child." Maybe, just maybe, both are true.
