Maria Sue Chapman

I blathered on yesterday about missing those two tiny blondie girls. Sometimes I am ashamed at my blathering. God placed those two little babies with us for a period of time for a reason. I know this and even though there were times when I thought my head would explode, there were good times. I shouldn’t forget that. I miss them terribly and am concerned for their future, but I know (I know!) that God is in control. That is something none of us should forget.

For me, everything was put into perspective (again) today when I learned that Maria Sue Chapman was struck and killed by an SUV driven by her older brother. What a terrible, terrible tragedy for everyone. Please join me in praying for this family as they walk through the valley of the shadow of death.

Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die…
- John 11:25-26

They are a very special family - they have been amazing and tireless in their awareness of adoptions of the world. We are praying for them too.
