Lily and I usually blog about Lily, since this is her blog, her life, her journey, and she is just about as perfect as I can picture a person to be. Lily was sent to me in such a special way. My heart still pounds and my skin tingles when I think about her adoption journey. And when I look at her sometimes I am overwhelmed that she is my girl and I have been given such a gift. What if I mess up?
But, this blog is not about Lily. I guess in a way it is because of Lily...
Okay, I am rambling.
I got a message from a genetic counselor, in another state. She has a mom who is pregnant with a child that has Ds. This mom is "very torn about adopting her child or what action to take..." (I am praying that "action" doesn't mean anything negative)
The counselor has heard Lily's story and wants to get the mom in touch with me.
I am asking for prayers that I might touch this mom and let her know how important she is, how important her baby is, how important her decision will be in making another family complete.
I have never asked for prayers for myself before, but I am asking now.
