What is Good

He has shown us what is good... to seek justice. to love mercy. to walk humbly with Him.

We are here.

A bit brain-fried from 24 hours of traveling.

But we are here.

All our stuff in four carry-on bags...

...So that we could meet this sweet lady at the airport. She brought us 2 suitcases loaded with baby bundles and comforters. All of it made by the loving hands of some amazing ladies who know what it means to do good.

We are here. In a world that has become familiar to us. 

How can it be that over the past 7 years we have come to love this place?

It is the birthplace of two sons and in a village not too far from here... a little girl... whom we hope to call our daughter.

We are here. Jet lagged. Bleary-eyed.

But at peace.

In an apartment that made us smile.  Greeted by a doll that bears the names of so many who have come before us. Adoptive families. Their names a testimony of those who also crossed the water to do what is right. To love mercy. To walk humbly.

He has shown us what is good.

He has gone before us.

We are so not alone.
