Above is a photo of Bee, the delightful, charming, wistful girl who we've sponsored through friends for the past four years. This spirited child absolutely captured Mr. Blandings' heart during his most recent trip to Asia; it was their first face-to-face meeting, and one that caught both of them off-guard with its ease and power. Bee is an orphan of perhaps the most tragic kind. As usual, I won't share the full story; it belongs to Bee, and will stay that way.
Despite the odds being overwhelmingly not in our favor, we have chosen to follow our hearts and pursue adding Bee to our family. After all, God doesn't play odds ... He makes them. And that's all the assurance I need.
Which leads us to change #4, of course.
