Merry Christmas, Isaiah

I know it is Christmas now in Russia.  I don't know what Christmas means in the orphanage where you live, Isaiah.  Do people celebrate?  Are there special treats or music?  Or is it like any other day?

So I pray for a Christmas miracle.  For God to impress upon the hearts and minds of a family somewhere that their life is not complete without you.

Tonight I held my little extra chromosome guy extra close.  He is so sweet, fighting a cold, in his Christmas jammies, with no idea of what the morning will bring.  What joy he will have.  What joy all of us will have!

May Isaiah -- and many other orphans -- experience the joy of family next year.  This is my simple, humble Christmas prayer.
