Against All Odds -- Our Latest Adoption
What are the chances?
I mean, what are the chances that a 14-year-old girl weighs only 14 pounds?
And what are the chances of such a "person" surviving in a crib all these years, living on a bland diet that's just enough to keep her alive?
Our hearts broke when we not only learned about the condition of orphans in this faraway land, but of this young girl in particular. Wouldn't yours? Wouldn't all of ours?
Against all odds, this treasure has survived. She is alive! How? We can only say it's because of the immense mercy of God. You see, some reading this would say that God should've shown mercy by taking her years ago. But God has another plan...
The Salems are taking this child as their own!
For more on our daughter-to-be, please go to my wife's blog. There are more photos and more details. There is also a link to a blog post about the girl by the woman who first found her. It will move your heart!
God bless you!
