Le Petit Oiseau is french for Little Bird. We are calling our precious little china doll Little Bird as we wait for our voyage to China to get her. This is our journey from meeting our Petit Oiseau on December 13, 2011 via referral through holding her in our arms and seeing the Lord's hand as we become a family of six. Many who read this blog have prayed for this journey and for that we are eternally grateful.

Brian sent our little box to China today. I imagine her every moment of the day seeing her toys, and wearing something wonderfully soft until I can hold her. It felt good to be busy as I filled that box, and already this morning, I was mentally filling another one. I told Brian if it is not too expensive, I am hoping we can send one every 2 weeks. Next time some chocolates for her caregivers and toys for her friends. We know she is in a room with 7 little children her age. I fill my thoughts with her and read blogs of those that have traveled to learn what we may need, experience, or see. I also see that there are so so so many orphans, many of whom will never know a family. It is inescapably incomprehensible to me that this child was chosen by God's hand for us. Today, I saw this quote in one of the blogs. It perfectly captured my emotions...
"You have not chosen one another, but I have chosen you for one another" - C.S. Lewis
It is a perfectly wonderful thought that nothing happens by chance. This child like my 3 others will be lent to me for a time to care and nurture. Her true parent tho is her heavenly Father, He is with her now and will be with her to the end of the age. Cathy
