LISA for the Pitcher family — MT
The heart is a strange thing. Some times it knows things that we are unaware of. And sometimes it is capable of more than we think possible. A year ago we were led on a journey neither one of us was prepared for. We were matched to adopt and bring home a beautiful princess who seemed the perfect fit for our family. Our hearts melted when we held her, tickled her, and showed her pictures of the life she was soon to have. And our family was beyond devastated to learn that bringing her home was impossible, and out of our control. She is still our daughter, and we’ll wait. But we know that right now there is another child who needs a family. She deserves two big brothers to protect her, and take care of her. She will thrive with three sisters who will teach her to dance, play dress up, and bake cookies. She needs THIS family almost as much as they need her! We once felt quite certain that our family was complete. And just as surely we now feel a void. We have chosen her BECAUSE of her special need, and knowing what a gift she will be to our family. We know that our Heavenly Father prompted our decision to expand our family in this way…and so we are again eagerly preparing our lives for the addition of one, very special, very loved, beautiful daughter of God.
