A Sweet Reflection

A year ago today, I officially received Munni's referral! That day was such an emotional day for me. I had the privilege of writing across a gazillion papers that I accept Munni as my daughter. Never have I enjoyed writing and signing my name more than I did that day :)

I love her so much and it absolutely floors me that she is here with me!  God was so faithful to me throughout her journey to come home.  Her case was abnormal for Ind*an adoptions because she was home 13 months from the time that I signed on with the second agency and 9 months after I signed her official referral.  During that journey, I knew supernatural things were happening but wasn't sure why.  The nurse came yesterday to drop off her TB medicines.  She told me that they got the initial results back from the lymphadenectomy and it was positive for active TB.  They are still doing the genetic testing so that they can perfectly tweak her medicines.  Presently, she is taking 4 TB meds and 1 B- vitamin to protect her liver as it metabolizes all of the medicine.  They are hopeful that by the end of June, she will be able to cut back to 2 meds plus the vitamin.  The nurse told me that she has been working exclusively with TB for the past 20 years and this is the first time she's ever worked with an ocular TB case.  She has been doing lots of research and told me that everything she has found has been published by Indian doctors.  That makes sense since India has the largest concentration of TB infected people.  Anyway, it again confirms the reason why her case moved so quickly - her life depended on it.

Munni is such a miracle for me and I feel so blessed that I am her mommy.  I am also SO THANKFUL for everyone who has supported us along the way.  Really, I will never, ever, ever (Taylor Swift?) be able to even come close to expressing how much it has meant to me.  It is definitely something that I will treasure in my heart forever!


  1. praising Jesus. this testimony is so amazing and encouraging.

  2. I love how God moved in your situation. . . and that it was such a mutual miracle: yours for motherhood, hers for daughterhood and to save her life. Beautiful.

  3. Oh I don't think I'll ever tire of your posts showing how God's been at work on this journey of yours!

    Praying for you and your little princess!
