|Nikita Frederick Feb. 4, 2008 - Feb 25, 2011|
When our son Johnny heard that Nikita would not be coming to live at our house and that he was in heaven with Jesus - Johnny said, "Nikita will have a BETTER & BIGGER house in heaven!" Yes he will! Then Johnny said, "Now we can save somebody else!" And we are! It will be because of our sweet Nikita that we will rescue beautiful Sonya along with our precious Dusty.
Sonya is a little sweetheart whom we've been praying would find a forever family since seeing this picture and description (below) in November. We hated the thought of leaving her behind. We had talked in November about going back to get her if she did not find her Forever Family by this coming summer. We prayed and prayed that her forever family would find her and bring her home soon. Especially because of her heart condition.
God answered our prayers and WE want to become her forever family. "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11 Sonya will not be replacing Nikita, but she will be another “arrow in our quiver” and we are thrilled. We hold on to the fact that counting "our son" Nikita we will ultimately be rescuing three orphans. We also look forward to the day that we will meet Nikita Frederick in Heaven to live forever and ever in that beautiful mansion Christ has prepared for us.
Thank you for all of your touching comments, beautiful thoughts and loving prayers, as well as, the thoughtful blog and facebook posts about our Sweet Nikita. We are touched and comforted by all of them! Your support and friendships are such a blessing to our family and extended family. We will still grieve... but as we said here - it is because of what Christ did for us that we are not hopeless! Please continue to pray for Dusty, Sonya, our family and extended family as we expand our "quiver!"
|Sonya and her Nanny played and sang songs. She would smile so BIG when the Nanny would rub her palms together (part of the song).|
|She was also counting and Sonya would put down her fingers as the nanny said the numbers!!|
|Sonya was playing with the small stacking rings and was doing very well lining up the small holes. She would wrinkle her nose as she was trying.|
