‘What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men …… That is what love looks like.’ - St. Augustine

Surprise! An Update You've Been Waiting For!

Some of you may remember this sweetheart we hosted a few months ago. Recognize her?

Ok, let's get real...ALL of you remember her and MANY of you have written me privately asking about her!
It's D!
I didn't want to post any update without permission from her current host family. But today I spoke to 'Mom' (more like Angel-Mom!) and she said it was fine to post and share some recent photos!

D is doing well. Yes, she still exhibits difficult behaviors, but she is in the right family and they are doing soooo well with her and they are seeing great progress. I wish I could shout their name to the world, because this family deserves a standing ovation. I am so grateful that God placed D with them, I can't even express. It is so obvious that this was a divine 'intervention', it's not even funny. D is thriving with them and making great strides, and still being as riotously funny as ever.

In time, if all works out and she is adopted, I'll let you all know. But for now, enjoy a few photos. Some of you are my facebook friends and may even know where D is hosted right now, but please be respectful of the family's privacy, if you do. And keep praying! D still has a lot of healing ahead of her, but she will thrive. I just know it. Your prayers have helped. Keep them coming! so, now enjoy some D cuteness!


  1. She is so precious.

  2. That's great! She looks so happy :)

  3. I'm SO pleased about this wonderful update.

  4. Thank you for sharing this with us! GREAT pics! Yes, please do share more of her story if she ends up being adopted (please, Lord) so we can celebrate with you. : )
