Celine Has a New Family

7 April, 2010

We had the most wonderful privilege last month of meeting Celine's adoptive parents and introducing Celine to them. Mama and Papa and 6-year old sister came to Yako and stayed with us for 4 days. We laughed and played together, ate together, and were privileged to share almost moment by moment the integration of a child into her new family. They are each doing very well as they are learning how to give and receive love from each other.

Celine is 2 ½ and this is a picture of her and her family as they arrived home.

Every adoption that we have the privilege of participating in puts me in touch once again with God's great plan for our adoption into the family of God. We are chosen by Him, loved by Him, and grafted into His family just as Celine was chosen, is now loved, and part of a new family!
