We've gotten several comments from people who are following our blog...so I thought this would be a great way to get more people praying for Lily. The first and second posts on this blog explain how God led us to Lily. Our family has no doubt that she is meant to be with us. We are at complete peace with our decision to bring her home from China. She has a bilateral hip dislocation and walks in a severe crouch.
Every good and perfect gift is from above. James 1:17
She is one determined little girl. Reports that we have say that she is very independent and enjoys playing on the playground with the other children at the orphanage. Her hips don't slow her down at all!! We have already met with an orthopedic specialist and reviewed X-rays that were sent from China. Since she is older, we won't really know if the dislocation can be corrected until we can do further testing to determine bone density and structure.
If you're reading this, please say a little prayer for our Lily Joy. Please leave a comment if you have a prayer request...we would love to pray for you, too!!
