A Treasure from Korea

Yesterday afternoon we checked the mail and to our surprise a package from Holt! We were really excited to see what it was going to be. We knew it could not be more paper work...Thank God! A letter inside said, that you have recieved this gift from your foster family. The foster family had Grace's photo taken professionally, and also with the foster mommy! It brought tears to my eyes to see this reminder of how much they love her. This is one blessed little girl that is for sure. Her birth mother loved her enough to give her LIFE, Her foster mother loved her enough to give her the best possible start and welcomed her into their family for a time, and new she would have to say goodbye, and I ...her Forever mother, who will give her all the love, guidance, and reasurance she could ever have or need, and family that will be here for her always and forever!
I shared the photos and necklace with Grace right away, she held the photo's and smiled! It was so cute to see. To this family I will be forever grateful , and I pray for them daily, as I know their hearts are still missing this sweet little Grace.
This Necklace for Grace is from our adoption agency Holt. They sent a necklace that has the Korean flag on one side and Grace's Korean Name and birth date engraved on the back. I think of all the children they take time to do this for, and it sure makes me grateful for all the work and love that they really do put into each child and family!
