One year ago today I got on a plane and landed in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. I experienced that marvelous ride in the back of an open truck up the mountain and I arrived with my mom at GLA where I met Mackenley. I have loved him for months, but today we met face to face.
I went to check on him after lunch and when he saw me his legs and whole body flew over the side of his crib and to me he ran! Ready to keep playing!
The first picture I posted on FB of Mack and me <3
Oh to know what he is thinking!
Grandma or Mama as he affectionally calls her and Mack on our first day with him.
It was a terribly difficult wait! Each step along the way was painstaking. Yet it was just one year ago, 365 days ago that we met and now he has been home for 3 months and one week! It doesn't seem that long now and I can't remember not knowing him, loving him, caring for him and being "mommy."
Thank you Lord for this beautiful, painful, redemptive journey that you have set me on!
