2 Years Ago

Two years ago today, our little guy was abandoned at a children's orthopedic hospital. My heart aches more today then ever as I think about his biological parents and what they have been through the past 2 years. I wonder if they are ever provided counseling to deal with their loss. I want to let them know their son is alive and well in America. His lip and palate have been repaired and he is beginning to talk. That he has great rhythm for a 2 year old and loves to figure out how things work. That he has no fear of animals, is incredibly flexible and wants to do gymnastics on our floor at 2! God had a hand on his life from the very beginning. He was sponsored by Love Without Boundaries for his lip repair, with one of their foster families and then at Swallows Nest the last couple of months of his time in China. Who gave him the name which means "Heaven Sent"? I pray that God will grant them peace and somehow, someway they know all is well. We are honored God chose us to parent our little Mu Shi Tian.

You brought tears to my eyes. Our love for our children is endless; like God's love.
He is precious! So happy for you all.

Our kids are so similar - it's interesting. She also does gymnastics on the livingroom floor (of her own accord). She also loves to figure out how things work. SHe is also a natural dancer and will jive to any kind of music. And she adores learning signs. You only have to show her a sign once, and she'll remember it weeks later. Amazing, isn't it?
And it kills me to look at Q's finding ad. It just breaks my heart...for everyone involved.
