After our referral for Gid, we couldn't wait to hold him and get to know this little boy God had chosen to be our son. We wondered what his little personality would be like. He seemed very serious in every picture we saw. Then, we heard from people who met him that he was very cautious about new people and wouldn't smile for them. As our meeting got closer, we received updates that he cried a lot with tummy aches and was hard to console.
I started praying.
Not praying for an easy peasy baby.
But, praying for a baby filled with joy.
Who would find joy in our family.
Who would bring joy to others.
Now, what comes to mind when I think of Gid is...Joy.
In every area, he is filled with joy.
That doesn't mean he never cries.
And he has certainly won every stare down he has faced.
But, who he is, what he has shared with our family and everyone he meets.
Thank you, Lord!
