God’s Picked Her Out Already

I don’t normally read the newspaper, but last week I did, probably because school is over and this homeschooling mom is a bit of a wanderer for the first few weeks of having no subjects to teach.  So, the second page of the Arizona Republic is the international news.  There was an article about Colombia that didn’t include information about the FARC, so I was drawn in.  Seems there was a natural disaster near a mountain village and 12 people were killed.  It hit me like a ton of bricks (no pun intended)…. this could be a story about Zaza’s family dying and her entry into the adoption world.  Weird, huh? 

My mind can go a bit crazy with the multitude of scenarios that might make Zaza available for adoption at five or six years old…. too many kids in a poor family, young mother without means to care for her girl, brought up by grandmother who dies, car crash leaving child an orphan…. or a natural disaster.  We just don’t know.  We might not ever know all the details, but we do know that God has her picked  out already for our family… or should I say, He has us picked out for her.  That is reassuring!

    I competetly get it! I have had some of those very same thoughts, and the only thing that could get me through them was knowing God has everything all figured out. It is so very cool, being let in on his plan :)

    Just to let you know we got a lot more info than we ever expeccted. Not sure if it is always this way, but we got name & a little social background info on GG’s birthmom. I am exited for GG to have this, if she wants it later in life. Kind of hoping we might be allowed to keep in touch w/her, if she wants us to.
