My children are very open about their birth, foster, and adoption story. We have many ongoing conversations. I think the one the conversation most covered is heritage. Sydney longs to know her paternal heritage and Ethan knows that his paternal heritage is of Hispanic origin. Katyana is just pleased that she can claim she most looks like me. The other two strive to find similarities, which is a very healthy act of ongoing bonding.

Today I took a picture of Ethan in a parking lot. I was just being silly with the camera while the others were getting out of the van before we went on an afternoon stroll. The photo turned out impressive. And what both Ethan and I love about the photograph is that my reflection is captured in both of his eyes. He was SO excited to see “me” in him.

I know there is a greater relevance spiritually about Christ being within me. My prayer is that I reflect Him. But I am pondering if I have ever felt the JOY of seeing Him reflected in me. I won’t forget Ethan’s response. It was such sweet innocent  delight. I want to be child-like in the delight that I would see Christ reflected in me; to undoubtedly know that I am His and He is Mine forever.
