Ready for Little Sister to Come Home
Behind us in the grocery check out line today were a mother and her two little girls. Mary Lawrence is sometimes painfully shy and so just stared intently at them as they both asked her a million questions. "What's your name? Is that your mommy? How old are you?" But she didn't say respond and just sucked her thumb as they continued with their questions. I was busy swiping my credit card when I overheard them ask one final question, "Do you have a sister ?" And I heard Mary Lawrence say quietly, "Yes, her name is Maggie." Such a precious moment. I wasn't 100% sure until today that she really understood that she had a real sister. But she definitely does and that day when they first meet will be so special...who knows, maybe it will be sooner than we think.
