isn't she pretty? she reminds me of someone I know well...
I get to read her sweet little letters, written through a translator. And she sends pictures that she draws...she loves art. And she loves dolls. She goes to school, and to church activities and programs like our VBS, provided through Compassion. In every letter she writes, she tells us that she's praying for us! Sweetness.
I think about her so much, but on this day she will be on my mind continually. I expect, in my home, that birthdays are days when you just feel the love. At the end of the day, when you lay your head on your pillow, you know without a doubt that you are loved in this house. And on this day, in India, I hope this sweet girl lays her head down knowing she is loved. And I hope she knows that her life has promise and potential. She has a "real" mom and dad in India. And I'm praying for them today, too.
So even though she will never read this, I still wanted to send out a very special Happy Birthday to the very special Niveditha!!!
