O.K., This is a wow, praise the LORD.
Of all things, we were watching “Puss n Boots” (only so-so from my perspective, but I was desperate for a movie because Steve and Kalyn are at the Father/Daughter dance tonight),
during the movie it came up that the cat was an orphan - had no mommy or daddy.
Well, Noelani, who doesn’t understand much English yet, picked up on a few important words and asked me about them. She asked me “No Mommy, no Daddy?”, I answered “That’s right, the kitty has no mommy or daddy and is at an orphanage now.”
She thought on that for a minute and then asked me again. I answered the same.
After a second, she tapped my arm and said.........
Are you ready for this?
She pointed to herself and with smiles said “Noelani - no orphan, has mommy and daddy now.”
My heart melted. And I smiled back at her and said (holding back the tears), “Yes, Noelani has a mommy and a daddy now.”
The pain of “birth” is worth it. Thank you all for your prayers for our family!!!!
