Day Three: I am so LOVED!
Day three was also a special day because it marked the first day that Maxim came running into my arms and wanted me to rock him and cuddle him. I whispered I love you in Russian in his ears and we rocked for a long time. He loved playing with my hair and saying over and over, Mama, Mama. Once again he asked about when he could leave the institution and come home with us. He is getting anxious.
My heart gets bigger each day.... I have prayed for a way to convey the things we see and experience here. Pictures, video's just cannot convey. I love being here. I absolutely feel Jesus here. If God is the father to the fatherless, most certainly I am in my Father's house where they dwell. Purity, innocence, zest for life, hope all exist here. I thought I would have oh so much time on my hands to blog and write yet I find the day just flies by and when I fall to bed it is fast and hard. I want to end with this video of the first time Maxim came over and crawled into my arms to cuddle but Blogger is not accepting the upload so if you want to see it you will need to go to my FB page. I'm so thankful to have it recorded. Thank you for the love and prayers....we feel them.
