I got an email yesterday from a beautiful sister in Christ, and though I won't go into what it said, I will say that she is an amazing woman who has blessed us in ways that can only be described as "angelic." She got to know Alexsey this past week and what she shared with me has filled me with such an immense appreciation for not only God's body of believers, but also for the knowledge that our "hopefully" soon to be son Alexsey is in good hands. Unless you have been through it, it is so hard to understand what it feels like to be connected to a child-- that is out of your reach. I last saw Alexsey in July of last year--- but ever since I have wondered how he is doing. Is he alright? Has he been adopted? Is he ill? Has he been transferred to Torez? Does anyone love on him? Is he talking? Is he crawling? Is he walking? Is he growing? Does he know that he just turned four years old? Does he know that the very first time I saw his precious smile, he stole a piece of my heart?
This friend answered all my questions and then some, and so for that I am so thankful. To me, she has been a huge answer to prayer. You know who you are---- and yes, I consider you an angel---- Alosha's angel.
I have been nesting like crazy. Actually got out the carpet cleaner, and dared to look under the couch cushions. That's where all of those missing socks went! I am sorting through clothes. From recent pictures that I have seen, I bet alot of the stuff I thought Alexsey would wear won't fit him by this summer. I guess that means, that I get to go out and buy him a few things. <
