Laelia inspires

I can’t imagine our lives without Laelia. For one thing I would not be as good a person. I would not be as patient. I would not be adopting a little one in a difficult situation. I would not have met the wonderful people who make up our AMC family. We would not be raising awareness for orphans overseas with AMC. I would not care as much about what happens outside of myself. I went from the broken mother who held Laelia in her arms and grieved deeply four years ago to someone amazed at how God has used this little girl to do great and mighty things.

Her daddy wouldn’t be as selfless. He would not be as good with children. He would not be as giving with his money. And he would have never considered going through something scary like surgery to save the lives of strangers.

Laelia is God’s gift to the world. All those surgeries weren’t for nothing. Laelia’s daddy had never gone through surgery before, and was scared of it, but knew if Laelia could do it then he could do it too. And he did.

    Praising the Lord that Charlie is doing so well. What a wonderful opportunity for God to get the glory via the news. Channel 10 had the best coverage in my humble opinion:) Prayers to all of you in the recovery process. Now Laelia gets to be the encourager to “dad” in his post-op!

    Love and prayers to all of you.

    Remembering those four-years-ago days and rejoicing in awe with you. What wonders God can make out of simple perseverance! (and one absolutely darling child)
