This girl....yes, this is the one! You have to hear her story....it is pretty amazing.
No...it's Seriously, amazing!
This girl was an orphan and adopted in her home country. We do not know the details. Her adoptive father passed away. She was taken to the local orphanage. I just can't imagine how hard this was for her.
She was close to an aging out situation....she would lose her chance at ever having family....
BUT as she would have it....a family came for her!
While shopping in China, her new family went into a book store. They even let her pick a book! She chose a comic book. Just a simple act.....
The family left her....left her in China because she did not pick a 'classic' is how the story goes....somehow, somehow...it was picked up in the local media. There was an outcry...After all, she was an age out.
But sometimes all of our hopes come tumbling down....but then HE always makes Beauty from Ashes!
The ONE who has always known her...took those ashes and used them for her good.
A unnamed public official orders a bone density scan to prove her age. It finds she is younger than expected and a new age is set! Praise God!
And then....our stories collide!
Actually crash through a series of events!
We (me actually) were looking at aging out boys....ONLY boys.
My hubby said I feel it's a girl....I laughed (you would think by now I would just kind of know better!). You see dear husband, there can't be a girl because said wife is not looking at girls! End of story!
But we all know how that goes...
Well....somehow Sara's file ends up at our agency. They were doing work for another agency and it fell through!
We get a call...Louisa, we feel this is your girl! I am always open....and ask questions. When I call my hubby, he immediately looks for the email, opens her file and knows.....
"That's my girl! Let's go get her!"
(Yep, never, ever laugh ladies)
Don't you just love it when God has a bigger plan and it just catches you off guard and you find that it is...well, a BEAUTIFUL thing?
It seems HE has had His hand on her life and we are so grateful to be a part of her story!
Please help us pray this sweet young girl home!
