We are connecting with the most beautiful people here. Apart from the friends we mentioned before, extra time at this hotel is affording us more time with people. They have many questions about why we adopt. We have so many answers about God’s love for us, the incredible value of our daughter (somewhat foreign in a state where female infanticide is very, very strong) and our opportunities to love the vulnerable. As we take interest in them and their culture, seek to understand their religions and traditions, there are beautiful opportunities to love them. Pray that we would shine brightly. Pray for our friends Patricia, Aslam and Shankar as well as orphanage staff we will meet and the conversation opportunities we will have once our daughter is with us. May her value and God’s love shine like the sun to those we are with.
