South Korea + latte love.

My friend Theresa is in Korea right now. Two days ago, she got to hold her little girl for the very first time. My heart is so happy for her, for Steve, for Finley, who has a wonderful family who can hardly wait to bring her home. They still have some more waiting ahead of them - prayers, please, for a court date happening next week - and another trip to finally bring her home sometime in the {hopefully} near future. I know I have shared some of their story on my blog before, so for more updates, you can head over to Theresa's blog here.

They are 13 hours ahead of us, over in South Korea, but we are able to get a little Facebook chatting in during the evening hours and the morning hours. Last night I had one of those nights... Matt was working late, one kid was giving me attitude, one was being less than truthful, and one had had a potty accident... again. And the house was a mess and the kitchen sink wasn't working properly... and so on.

This morning, there was a knock on the door. It was Theresa's mom, holding a vanilla latte... for me... from Theresa. Even thousands of miles away, she's still My Person. Even in the midst of her own joy and sadness, she's still thinking of ways to bless others.

Thank you, T. You are the embodiment of what it means to love others well. Come home soon! We can't wait to meet your precious little girl!


  1. What a sweet friend! Coffee is truly a love least I think so! That picture of them is precious. Their little girl looks so happy!

  2. Brought tears to my eyes... Our "People" are truly priceless aren't they?! A true piece of Heaven. :)

  3. So cool! Both the latte love and the picture of your friend with her little girl!!!

  4. I haven't been to your blog in a while, but am so glad it was on my heart to stop by today. We pray for that family all of the time, for their hearts, for their baby, the list is too long to type here. I can't imagine the journey they've been on, but I am so thankful she has someone like you to walk beside her through it.
