Chloe: Mom, how many relatives do I have in my orphanage in China?
Me: Well, I don't think you have any relatives there since none of those children would be actually related to you.
Chloe: Oh, do you think there were 100 kids there with me?
Me: Yes, Chloe there were at least 100 other kids there with you.
Chloe: That is SO sad, Mom, all those kids and their first moms and dads can't take care of them.
Me: I agree, it is very sad. We don't know why every time, but I do agree, for some children, their moms and dads just can not take care of them, so they leave them at an orphanage hoping that someone else that can take care of them will find them.
Chloe: That's why you have me, right?
Me: Well, we aren't sure, but that could be the reason. You could be right.
Chloe: I know I'm right, Mom. My first Mom and Dad could not take care of me so they took me to the orphanage and they KNEW you'd find me.
Me: ******** (That was my stunned silence.) I love that idea, Chloe. And I am so glad that they allowed us to take you to live with us. God has a good plan!
Chloe: Me too, because they knew I'd need glasses and you'd have to buy them for me.
Me: Yes - I am glad we can buy you glasses and take care of you. We love having you for our daughter. But I'm also glad God gave you to us for another reason.
Chloe: Why is that?
Me: Because many people in China do not know about God and I am so glad God brought you here so you could learn about Him.
Chloe: (Imagine this, if you can, in her best almost-seven-year-old -adult -voice) Mom, I am SO glad I learned about God. I just CAN NOT imagine my life without Him.
She makes me smile......
