Unanswerable Questions

Today is Madilyn’s second birthday.  Our family has been so blessed to have her in our lives.  She has been the source of much joy and laughter in our home.

Today, I can not help but let my thoughts drift to the questions that Madilyn may one day have that we may not have answers for.  Most children want to know about the day they were born.  If  Madilyn wants to know about that day we will not be able to answer her questions.  While we will never be able to tell her about the day she was born, we will be able to tell her about the day she came to be  a member of our family.  That day was one of the happiest days of our lives.   Sometimes I wonder about her life during the seven days before she became a part of our lives. I wish that we could have been there during her first hours and days.  Of, course our not being there does not really matter, what matters is that we are here for  her now and will continue to be here for her.

Due to her adoption situation some questions she has will most likely never have answers.  I hope that as Madilyn grows she will embrace  and find comfort in these words found in Jeremiah 29:11–  For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.”
