i've never been a big reader. my folks never really read us too many bed time stories and i when i had spare time, i was sure to find something "better" to do than to sit down and read a book.
however, i love reading books to children. i love adding the voices and inflection to help keep the story interesting. when i worked at a pre-school right after college i made sure to have story time every day. will and i have chatted about how we plan on reading bed time stories and keeping a bookcase full of books in the baby's room. hopefully our teaching our baby to love reading will help me regain appreciation for it as well.
it was a great surprise when kathy and mark gave us this story book for the baby last night.
i attempted to make my way through the story while we were making dinner last night. i got a few pages in and found the tears were making it too hard to read. this is the page that hung me up.
will took over and finished the remainder of the book. such an amazingly sweet little story about God matching the adopted baby to the perfect family. even though i know this is exactly how this is supposed to work, i was still getting antsy about the pace at which things are moving. we are not even at the point where we are on a wait list (nor will we be for some time yet), but i was already getting worked up about the waiting game. however, this story book will help me remember that this is all happening at God's pace - and God has the perfect plan in store.
