Our wonderful translator from the local Chinese Church came by this morning and spent some time with Rachel. She assured Rachel that I would not leave her alone and that I would be right here, should she need anything. Then, when her heart was "ready", I would take her home... Rachel turned to me and in the sweetest, most tender, post- breathing tube voice, said... "Thank you" Are you serious? NO, Baby... thank YOU! The pleasure, the joy, the gift... is all MINE!
I don't remember a time in my life when I've felt as grateful as I feel today! I am smitten with my precious new daughter and soon I will take her home to start the life she's only dreamed of before now... It is a miracle I still can't believe God has blessed me to be a part of! "Immeasurably more" does not begin to tell!
Here are the photos I promised earlier! I want the people that have "labored in love" through prayer to see God's beautiful answers... Our precious Rachel~less than 24 hours after open-heart surgery!
Yes, adoring fans!... this is a wink for YOU!
Mommy could go on and on... but it will suffice to say that my own heart is ready to BURST! :-)
