Tonight, what did we see before our surprised eyes??!
Katya gently pushing Chad on the swing! Appropriately! And Nicely! And she was happy about it too!
Charity quickly snuck pictures from inside the house, because if Katya hears the click of the camera, she is liable to shriek unhappily and stop doing whatever it was that we were trying to capture!
I know these don't really show the action, but trust me, that is what she was doing! It was so cool to watch her do something for her brother that was positive and kind!! Katya is learning!! She is blooming, slowly but surely, into the child God created her to be!
Our hearts are filled with great thankfulness.
In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths." We were soberly observing that had we trusted in our own understanding, we would have totally missed out on the amazing and exciting (and yes, exhausting and stressful too) journey that we have been on with our sweet Katya. We would have missed out on so much.
I'm thankful that we remembered to trust and obey when God called us to adopt her. I hope and pray that we continue to remember to trust and obey Him, and to follow His paths as we seek to raise Katya and our other kiddos.
