I’m a bit giddy this morning. I was a bit giddy going to bed last night too.
I have to show you something very adorable:
Andrew gave my birthday present to me early this year, and her name is Hermella….
For a while now my insides have been screaming at me to mother more children. However, me getting preggers again is not likely to happen, and we’re also not in a position to adopt (right now.)
So, for the past year I have craved a child to sponsor. After reseraching differences between World Vision and Compassion International, we decided to go with Compassion.
Last night, Andrew and I welcomed 4-year-old Hermella from Ethiopia into our family.
I could say her name over and over! It’s the cutest. The name Hermella is described as meaning: “Into the palace. Sacred mountain.” Wow.
Also, she’s a saint Patty’s Day baby – which warms my Irish heart.
Speaking of hearts…
My heart grew bigger last night as I was flooded with hopes and prayers and dreams for her.
Anyway, I am beyond thrilled – as any new mother should be ;)
Thanks for letting me share my joy.
