Today was a very special day in our lives....we dedicated Bella to the Lord during a baby/child Dedication service.
In our small church of about 200 people, there were over 10 families dedicating children...two of those children were adopted!
Isn't it amazing how God forms families? And now, we give Bella back to Him--and trust through his strength and mercy, we can help her grow in the knowledge and wisdom of the Lord.
And then, this afternoon I read this wonderful quote from another gal:
God doesn't give children with special needs to strong people; He gives children with special needs to ordinary, weak people and then gives them strength. Raising a child with Down syndrome doesn't TAKE a special family, it MAKES a special family.
We are eternally grateful that God MAKES our family special through the gifts of Grace and Bella!
