Last day...

Well, today is my last day with my current client.  It's been an amazing journey the past few months.  Sadly her health is deteriorating and her son and daughter in law are coming into town Friday to take her to Louisiana with them.  I'll probably never see her again, and that makes me icredibly sad.

I talked with her yesterday about adoption.  You see, she and her husband didn't have children, so they adopted a baby boy and girl.  We talked for an hour about what it's like to be an adoptive parent.  Even though her mind slips very often, she spoke to me as if she was completely coherent.  Maybe it was the fact that I was talking about my current problems and she understood which in turn helped her remember her past.  I don't know.  All I do know is that it was nice.

I've noticed that ever since I began in home care, the people that God has allowed me to serve all have invested in my life in one way or another.  With my first client, I learned Patients.  My second client taught me perseverance.  Now, this client has taught me that it's okay if I can't produce a child for my husband.  I will still love my adopted child just as much as one of "my own."

I'm so grateful to have been given the opportunity to work with my current client.  We've talked til our ears fell off.  We've shopped together.  We've eaten meals together.  I hope that I have brought joy to her life just like she has to mine.

I'm looking forward to seeing who God places in my life as a new client!

  1. That's awsome that she was able to give you some peace about adopting. I have alot of adopted friends and even a cousin. I think a child in need of a good home and wonderful mother is on it's way for your darlin girl. Remember your post about wanting to help children? This may be your ministry. You sound a little better today. I'm so glad. I pulled my head out last night and realized God has something big in store for me. I just have to wait to see his plan unravel. I'm not very patient though. haha
