These Are The Children.

Our beloved Sveta Josie, home two months.

Learning english so rapidly we can hardly keep up.

Causing us to pause and enjoy things we never noticed before - the joy in saying "GOOD MORNING!" to everyone we see.
How grass feels upon our feet in the summertime.
Enjoying a meal with people you love, and who love you.
Saying "God our Father, we thank you..." with such zeal it creates laughter during the blessing.
People say she is lucky.
We disagree.
Adoption has shown our family a sliver of God's heart we never would had known, if not for Sveta.

We are the lucky ones.

Then Esau looked at the women and children and asked, "Who are these people with you?"

 "These are the children God has graciously given to me, your servant," Jacob replied.
