New situations are hard for The Littles. Not every time, but most. New relationships are not often welcomed by them and to get into their VERY small inner-circle, someone has to be around a lot and try, try and try again to befriend them.
Jon and I are both social people and would love The Littles to be the kind of kids who freely give away squeezes and smiles. It is coming. We praise God that He has brought strong attachment between our little family. Now, I pray daily for their security. We pray they can be secure with safe people, not panicking if a new friend interacts to them. God is answering prayers.
We went to the zoo with some new friends and I praised God at the growth I saw in The Littles.
And each time they reach up and let someone take their hand, or give someone a high-five, fist bump, or just let someone else into their world…
my heart rejoices.
Will you pray for J&A? Please pray that God would grow a deep security in their hearts. That they would have no fear that Jon and I would abandon them and that we could have wisdom in parenting. I am lacking. (James 1:5)
