Sweet Family.

A few days ago... okay more like a week or so ago I posted a few adoption blogs that make my heart smile, my eyes cry and my spirit leap.
Precious Selah who had found her forever family at His Hands His Feet Today went home to be with Jesus .
I actually know Kim in real life and know most of her children.
I never got to meet Selah but her 55 days of life she was able to be loved.
Please go read her story, and be in prayer for her mother and father and her 10 siblings.
This princess at 55 days old impacted earth with God's love in ways some people never will.

Here is a quote I heard from Lorraine @ All are Precious In His Sight.

"To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable."
~CS Lewis, The Four Loves

The Green's love with huge vulnerability, they adopted KNOWING there was a cost. Not $ cost but of their hearts. They gave anyways and because of that a precious child was able to know love, and many others found Jesus and encountered his love.

I love C.S. Lewis and I think the quote is on target.

It is a very sad situation, but you've shed a lovely light on it...
Many kind thoughts and prayers to the Green family.
