Happy Birthday, Mesky! I really wish that I could be there. I love you very much. Your little brother, Eby.
When I look at this picture and short message, I am completely in awe of God’s love for my children.
When we adopted Eby, we were told that he had an older sister. Nobody with our agency seemed to know what had become of her, and, of course, we were concerned for her safety and well being. We later learned that when their mother died, the children were separated and ended up in different orphanages in Soddo, Ethiopia. Mesky was adopted by a family in Italy and Eby came to us. Both families knew that their child had a sibling, but neither knew what had become of the other child.
I wrote the story of how we found each other in this post, From Soddo to Italy to Idaho, if you would like to read more.
Eby is seven years younger than his sister, and not much of a communicator, but he wanted to send her a birthday greeting on her Facebook wall. This morning she sent a lovely message back to him. I can’t wait to share it with him when he wakes up.
The Lord loves my Eby, and today that makes me smile and smile.
