I love you so much and I am glad that you’re not an orphan anymore and that you are my sister and I want you to come to my birthday party and all my friends can come and watch me do ballet.”
What began as an adoption dream and a prayer over a Jamaican anniversary vacation 9 months ago has resulted in a sweet little 4 yr. old girl now sitting on my lap grinning at me as I type up this Homecoming page write-up. How can I even begin to describe the joy that this little girl has brought to our family in these short weeks since returning home with her from Ukraine? She is beautiful, a miracle. She has not only been transferred from one home to another, one country to another country, but from one kingdom to another Kingdom. We have been honored, privileged, thrilled to be the avenue that God has chosen to bring her to safety and redemption. We look forward to watching her develop and blossom into the beautiful woman that God created her to be. We rejoice to have Ava Alina Grace in the Urban family.
