For each of my foster nieces (and nephews, although we have yet to have any) I like to have something to give them. I made a teddy for our last princess, and for this one, a blanket:
When I prayed for her at dinner tonight, and for my sister and her family, Matthew turned and ask me why we had to give her away. I explained to him the situation. How is was a very special thing that she was going from one loving family to a permanent home. He seemed to understand. Ewan, however, was perplexed:
You mean, we will have to do that with Declan too?
Hard for little ones to make sense of it all. However, we have all been so blessed to have her in our lives. God has used us for her and her for us.
We will be praying for my sister and brother in law and all my nieces and nephews as they part with their baby sister this coming week. God's love has filled them all to do this amazing work and he will heal their wounds and make them strong again.
