It doesn’t get any better than this.

From theFacebook post of Michael and Megan Foster, sharing details with friends and family:

Our guide, Simon, who has seen over 500 adoptions in over 20 years of work in China is moved to tears as he says he’s never seen a child so happy to meet her parents. We were prepared for much worse in this moment and we know of course there will be challenges to come still. But we believe with all our hearts that YOUR PRAYERS moved mountains to make this moment so exceptionally powerful and beautiful! We know adoptive families understandably don’t always go public with this moment, but we feel God has blessed us too much not to share it with those who helped make it possible. (Please feel free to share) We hope you are blessed and encouraged and inspired to share in this glimpse of it – we believe this is God’s passion for every lonely one on the planet (one less now!)
