When we first saw Jorja's face on Lifeline's Waiting Child list.
What a beautiful little girl.
and such a huge smile!
Why is she still waiting?
We then saw her special need
We didn't know anything about Hep B+
what precautions we would have to take.
Having a full house already,
would her body liquids infect someone else in the family?
What if Jailyn and her shared a tooth brush?
What if she was on a play date and
she got hurt and bleed?
Would she infect a friend?
How would we deal with this?
Legally we wouldn't have to disclose her condition to anyone,
but is that really how we would live?
Hiding her condition?
Our physician helped us research and prepare for her arrival.
We were ready and willing.
When we got settled at home,
we had her blood tested.
And guess what?
NO Hep B+!
Jorja has had a few scrapes since she has come home.
Every time she bleeds,
I thank God for healing her.
For bringing her home to us and
comforting our fears of her "condition".
Don't let your fears stand between you and God's plan!
