"Oh the Places You'll Go"

Hi dear friends... yesterday was the magical Dr. Seuss' birthday... did you know that? Well, now you do. It's also known as, "Read Across America Day". In honor of celebrating Dr. Seuss, (because you know how much I love him, right? If not, you need to catch up on this post, this post, and this post), I purchased a new book!

and after reading it... I cried! Why do I do that after I read Dr. Seuss books...seriously EVERYTIME?!? Well it certainly wasn't because the book has a sappy/sad ending, but because the whole time I was reading it... I was thinking of our little one(s) in Ukraine waiting for the hubby and I...waiting for their mommy and daddy to come and get them. Right now, that little one(s) only know one life... and that's the life that put them in the orphanage/living in the orphanage. The whole time I kept thinking, "Oh little one(s) you have NO idea the places that you will go..."

"Little one(s), you are going to have sooo many opportunities once you leave that orphanage... and daddy and mommy cannot wait to open the doors for you..."

"Sweet little one(s)... hate to tell you this... but we'll be moving around A LOT... and you'll be seeing TONS of new places, and experiencing things that your friends in Ukraine could only imagine seeing/doing..."

"Oh little one(s), there are going to be many challenging things in your future... but you're going to succeed... you will indeed... You are going to move mountains..."

"Oh sweet one(s) we cannot wait until we can share the love of Jesus with you... because it's through HIM that we can move those mountains..."

I think this book is going to have to come with us to Ukraine... even if they won't be able to understand it at first... I think it's necessary.

Pin It!
