I love sharing Zoya's story with others because when I stand back and take a look myself, it's pretty unbelievable...it's kind of like a story...with ups and downs and all-arounds, but I'm mostly left with a feeling of amazement as each day ends with a new page being written. To look at what God rescued her from...I think I'm still trying to process that. God's love for all of His children is so amazing that he is moving mountains every day to facilitate these "rescue missions"....I see a future of an orphan revolution and have hopes that one day while we are still alive on this planet the word "orphan" will be replaced by "son" or "daughter." It is amazing to see more and more orphans finding their forever families through Reece's Rainbow. Zoya has a family. She is a daughter...a cherished, beloved, valued, daughter just like it was always meant to be.
The wow factor of the way God is sewing together Zoya's life story will never become dull to me. It is simply so amazing that I will never fully understand the magnitude of it all...try as I might, there are inside stitches of Zoya's beautiful quilt I will never see...but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate those unseen stitches. As much as I'd like to open the quilt and look inside to see the stitches that were made before Zoya was a part of my life, opening the quilt would destroy the beauty of it. I am learning to appreciate the unknown stitches because even though some of those unseen underneath stitches may be ugly, they are necessary to craft the beautiful finished product.
HAPPY 10 MONTHS HOME ZOYA GIRL! LOVE LOVE LOVE
