Tuesday night as I tucked Dimples in bed, I prayed over her and then looked in her eyes and said, “You are not an orphan; you are a Qualls.” She squirmed and turned away. I asked her to let me see her eyes and she turned back to meet mine. I stroked her cheek and whispered again, “You are not an orphan; you are a Qualls.”
Once again my blog has been silent as our three day trip to Seattle turned into ten. We had therapy, lots of medical appointments, and then more therapy. I am deep down tired to the core.
My sisters pitched in and helped with Honeybee, Sunshine, Eby and Little Man so I could focus on working with Dimples. It shreds my heart to see how our children suffer from their early beginnings. We live in a broken world, full of broken people, and sadly, children often suffer deep wounds.
I missed Russ more than words can say.
We came home from Seattle last night just in time to join our family reunion with Russ’ family. Dimples is so happy to be with her cousins, aunts and uncles and grandparents. Today the children have had a picnic, gone swimming in the cold river, and played cards.
She is not an orphan, she is a Qualls, and I pray the love flowing around her today will speak that truth loudly to her heart.
