Please go and read the post by Indian Lake Papa, its about an adoption into his family through the eyes of the baby. Very touching. It reminds me of how we are the same as that baby through the eyes of our Creator, adopting us into his family. When love takes us in…
Sorry Papa, couldn’t find the video of the one you love, so maybe the one I love will still speak your heart!

Perfect !! Just perfect!! Thank you Darla!! I am broken right now – Jesus, thank you for touching my heart through so many new friends!
My daughter & son-in-law are now waiting to go to the Far East for their second adopted child. Hopefully will happen by years end. They also have a girl that God gave them through natural channels! :o)
Thanks, Darla! My soul is crying from the beauty of it all.
Love is beautiful and even more beautiful coming from the source…God is love!
Beautiful. I am touched to my core.
Steven Curtis Chapman has a wonderful testimony of adoption. Beautiful song, I also love papa’s story of adoption. Amen, Love Tanya

WOW! that is so beautiful! Darla – you are such a good friend to post this up! You are beautiful too!
What a testimony this all is!
I love you!
Thanks for sharing this very touching story. God is so good!
Blessings in Christ–
I’m so glad I found this (thanks to Tam–InProgress!)
I am in the process of adopting a 6 yr old. Her parents have been friends of ours for a very long time and although my husband is her Godfather, we didn’t really know her.
Long story short, they are unable to care for her, and we are delighted to call her our daughter.
But I needed that song. I needed to be reminded that although it is difficult for me, (never having my own children) SHE is the one who is in need. Let me try to explain: When you have gone for years longing for a child, and then one comes along, it is, at times, difficult to accept, difficult to believe, that you have been granted the one gift that you wished for and thought would never come true. That difficulty can manifest in an inability to allow the love of the child to penetrate your heart, for fear that it may not be real. But it is real, and it is forever. And she needs to know that her love can penetrate my heart, that she can love me unconditionally as I can love her unconditionally.
Anyway, enough therapy for one blog response!
I cried a tear…it’s a good thing!
