Last night, I prayed for bonds to be forming even now between my three wild littles and their sister Sylvie. They understand and get the orphan crisis in a way that many adults do not. To them, the idea of not having a family just makes no sense. They’ve been praying for an “orphan to come into our family” for as long as I can remember. And every single night, Claire in particular asks Jesus to get “all the orphans in a forever home soon.”
These three love each other fiercely, fight passionately and have elaborate inside jokes and games and language. I am praying that God would build that in with Sylvie.
I know that it won’t be easy. I know that it won’t be all unicorns and rainbows…but I also know that God can do things that aren’t easy and that He can bring beauty from ashes.
And I guess that’s my prayer.
That Sylvie’s life would go from ashes to beauty. That she would feel such a sense of belonging with all six of her siblings but especially with the three I call the “Littles”.
