A Bouquet of Flowers

I'd like to write you something that Jeff came across at just the right time or rather just when God wanted him to. I believe this is the final "coincidence" that made Jeff believe Africa is where our next child is.

"Who among us would ever desire to walk through a garden to behold only one color and one kind of flower? I enjoy roses, but not just red ones. I
enjoy white, yellow, and pink roses too. When you mix a few of these roses with purple and yellow irises, carnations, and lilies, along with a little
greenery wrapped together with a bow, you have a beautiful bouquet. When God sees his children, he appreciates their unique colors and categories. But when he gathers them all together in his divine palm, he is holding a masterful bouquet. (I am so excited to see the next beautiful rose that God puts in our masterful bouquet-written by my husband!)"

Jeff, you continue to amaze me. Thank you! I love you! These orphans are all God's children and He wants us to love them as He does-doesn't matter if they're brown, black or white. They all deserve love and we will soon have a little one from Africa! I absolutely can't wait!
