“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

Another Alli Update
Last night, Mike and I talked and we were both prepared today for a possible regression because yesterday was sooo good. :)
But, when Alli woke this a.m., she was happy and ran into daddy's arms. We had a great morning, and a little while ago she called her other family. It was a good call and she told them all about their antics playing Ancient Egypt.... they watched The Mummy Returns a few weeks ago about the explorers that find the lost tomb of somebody.... and all the events that follow.... it is an action adventure type movie that is not serious, but a little scary mixed with humor.
The girls have been playing explorer ever since. :)
I loved how she was excited to tell all their adventures. When she hung up, I was walking into the kitchen and she ran into my arms and said, "I love being a kid mommy!" :) "I love you!"
I have this sense, that she is really realizing that she is finally home.
And she happily went back to doing her school work.
I am thinking that we have reached a new level of attachment.... for all of us.
She is just adorable. :)
