Sometimes I wonder how Karina views God as her heavenly Father considering the abuse her biological earthly father gave her.  
God continues to allow us to see his grace in her life.
A few days ago Karina and I prayed for Sheila while she spoke at a women's brunch and  after the prayer Karina said, "Daddy, I do not know how to pray."
We talked for a little while about what prayer is, that God wants us to pray to him and that she can talk to him as her heavenly daddy.
She let out a big sigh and said, "It is so good to finally have a daddy."
"I pray that God will help me be a good earthly daddy to you."
"You are a good daddy" she whispered.


  1. Wow! What sweet words to hear!I remind my children everyday that I am just as blessed to have them as they are to have a forever family.


  2. So thrilling to read. Karina with her Daddy! We have been following your blog for a while. We are in the process of adopting from Ukraine as well. You can see our story at ellisorjourney.blogspot.com.
    Blessings to you all!

  3. I love hearing this. I prayed for Karina way back, and to be able to hear about and see her joy is wonderful.
