God's Plan

As I tucked my girls in bed the other night Emma began asking questions about Max's mom and dad.  She wondered if he had any brothers and sisters that they couldn't keep either.  All those questions are so hard and break this mommy's heart.  I tried to explain to the girls why kids in China are left at places like the train station.  I have no answers and I won't pretend that I do.  I know someday those will be the questions that Max will have and I am sure through tears I will share some of the same things.  The one thing I do know is that God loves our sweet boy and has plan for his life.  I have seen God's hand in Max life from the very beginning of our journey to him.  His little life represents so much to me on my journey of life.  I pray that someday Max will know Jesus as his personal Savior and will be able to rest in knowing that God has a perfect plan for his life even if there are unanswered questions.

There are so many things I don't know or don't have answers for but there are also things that I do know.  As we have recorded our journey to Max I pray that he will see God's hand in bringing him into our family and the perfect fit that he is.  I pray that he will know that a mom an ocean away loved him enough to make a hard decision that gave him a chance at life. I pray that he will know that this mommy has fallen head over heals in love with him.  I also pray that he will know when he was an ocean away he was touching lives and changing hearts.  God was working through him before he even knew who God was.

That brings me to this sweet family.  When we were in China I got a comment on my blog from a mom who had found our blog and followed our journey to Max.  Just like Andrew spoke to our heart Max did the same thing to this family.  The started the adoption process to bring a little boy home.  Today it is with great joy that I get to introduce you to sweet Hudson.

In just a few weeks his mom and dad will travel to China to bring him home.  The other day Hudson's mom sent me this email and wanted to record part of it for Max some day ...

Congratulations on Max's 1 year anniversary.  He will always have a special place in our hearts.  When he gets older, you will have to tell him how God was using him before he even knew who God was.  :o)  His precious little life has forever changed our lives.

 Soon I will turn this blog into a book for Max.  I want him to know the way God has worked in and through his little life.  I can't wait to see what God has in store for our bundle of energy!
