"God challenges us to change the world.  And to accomplish this, He asks us to change it one life at a time."
Tim Tebow

We may have changed this little girl's life, but she has also changed ours in tremendous ways - she has brought us unspeakable joy; showed us what bravery and courage really look like; shared her heart with us despite many previous hurts; and allowed us to witness just how powerful and full of love and grace our God really is.  These last 5 weeks we have witnessed change in the most profound way. . . through the miracle of adoption.

Our precious Leiney Grace will experience more significant change in the coming weeks.  On March 19 she will undergo open-heart surgery to repair her congenital heart defect, Tetralogy of Fallot.   Although this change is absolutely necessary and will inevitably bring about fear, pain, sadness, and various other emotions for all of us, we look towards this day with great hope for a new beginning for our Leiney Grace - a healthy heart and a full life!

What a beautiful girl Leiney is! I have enjoyed following your blog as you received another special gift God has given your family. We will be praying for Leiney and her surgery on March 19th.
What a beautiful smile she has! We can not wait to meet her.... Love you all.

I have never witnessed more bravery than through older child adoption. Our Mia is the bravest person I know and it sounds like your Leiney Grace is just like her. Praying for you from now until we hear good news on the 19th my friend!!!
