My life is full of dirt, smells, basketballs, geckos, and guitars.  :)

So why in the world do I have a little girl’s room in my house?  I wonder the same thing sometimes.  ;)

Two words….

God’s Grace.

By God’s grace, I found out about a wonderful organization called Project143 last October, and a seed was planted in my heart.

By God’s grace, He prepared the hearts of my husband and boys to make room for a little girl in our family

By God’s grace, a little 8 year old girl’s face popped up on our computer screen last February, and it was love at first sight.  He immediately placed a desire in our hearts not only to host her for the summer, but to adopt her into our family forever.

By God’s grace, she has my husband’s eyes and a dimple in her chin like me.

By God’s grace, he provided financially for her to come stay 5 weeks with us this summer.

By God’s grace, we spent five wonderful weeks together this past summer becoming the family God had always meant us to be.

By God’s grace, she has been cared for by a wonderful foster family since she was three, and by His grace, they want her to be a part of our forever family.

By God’s grace, we get to see her sweet face every week through our Skype calls.  We do not speak the same language, but there is always a lot of smiles and laughter during our calls.  Love speaks loud and clear in any language.

By God’s grace, she will be back home with us soon.  We hope to travel over to her country to get her before Christmas, but if not, she will be traveling here for Christmas with Project 143 again.

By God’s grace, He has given my husband and I a daughter and my boys a sister.

By God’s grace, I am reminded of how much He loves His children….big and small.  :)  Oh, how He loves us!!!!

And so this is my “inspired room.”  When I see this room….I see God’s Grace.  And my cup runneth over.
