Our Butterfly

We have started visits with our butterfly and they are going very well. She had her first weekend visit this weekend. Oh, how I loved having her back in our home. I did not realize how much I missed her big smile, sweet cuddles, and contagious laugh. We had a wonderful time playing, watching movies, enjoying nature, and cooking together. Although all of those things were wonderful, the biggest blessing was when I saw her fall into the arms of Jesus.

I have prayed that she will grow closer to God and open her heart to His love first and foremost. This weekend we had an amazing discussion on the importance of prayer and reading God's word. She asked to make her own prayer journal and was eager to start the devotional book I had ordered for her.

While at church on Sunday, she asked to go and pray. I was overwhelmed by her desire to leave her worries at the feet of Jesus. She cried for the first time all weekend after that prayer and later she said, "Mommy, that prayer helped me." Be still my heart. God is at work in my baby girl's life. What a miracle it was to see her realize that God grants us peace in the midst of chaos.

Please be praying for our family as we continue visits and hopefully bring our baby girl home.
