Last night, we had the most wonderful opportunity to hear Nick Vujicic speak and have a personal meeting with him! It truly was the best Mother's Day gift ever. Nick has been such an inspiration for us since we started this journey. Shortly after I fell in love with Sean's picture, I found out about Nick online. What an inspirational man who will be such a good role model for our son. Here are a couple of his websites
It was such a blessing to have the chance to personally talk to him. He was so excited about our adoption and wanted to know what he could do to help. He also wanted to pray for us and asked us specifically what would be the best thing for him to pray about with us. Guess what we said? Anyone who knows about our roller coaster knows that we need many prayers that immigration will come through and allow us to bring our son home before his country shuts down adoptions for the summer. So we all gathered together and we prayed about this. He also really hopes to meet Sean one day. That would be such a blessing.
Oh, and did I mention that he is from the same country that Sean is from?! He actually thinks his cousin has met Sean, which brought tears to my eyes. He said his cousin called him a couple months ago and said that he had met a little boy at the orphanage in Sean's city, and that he was just like Nick. Well, that would be Sean!!! None of this is a coicidence. This meeting was truly meant to be. I have no doubt in my mind about that. It was a magical evening and I just feel so blessed about it all. Like I said, what a truly wonderful Mother's Day!
