From the back of the car Haig asked, “Mom, why didn’t you adopt us from China?”
Me: What? Because I didn’t have to, God put you in my body.
Eli: When will God put a new baby in your tummy so it can come out and we can see it?
Me: long pause…I don’t know, maybe never:)
Thus began many conversations throughout the day about what adoption is and other people that are having babies. So funny
Then we were dropping off some Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes and I was elaborating about how some children don’t have houses they only have boxes to live in. The boys really pondered that. Haig pulled me down and whispered to me, “Mommy, maybe we should not send them just toys, but food.”
Isn’t that sweet? I explained that Samaritan’s Purse also provides them with meals. He talked about that throughout the rest of the day.
McCall wanted to know why Santa comes to some children and not others. He asked if Santa can’t see them. Hmm this is getting tricky. I explained that even if Santa can’t see them, Jesus can and that is why He sends them shoeboxes through people like us. It is a way to show them that Jesus loves them and sees their needs. He seemed satisfied with that.
Their questions are getting harder:)
