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.


  1. That is SUCH a sweet story, Lee! Made me cry a little. Just wanted you to know that I'm still praying for all of you and sweet Maggie. I hope she gets to come home very soon!!

  2. Precious! I know you are so eager to bring your sweet Maggie home. Hope y'all had a wonderful Christmas ... and that 2010 brings many blessings from our Lord. love you!

  3. How sweet! That will be a great day. Cutest Christmas card ever by the way. -Carrie Garcia
