Another Story

In the midst of the chaos of today, Katylynn was such a trooper.  While we were sitting in the Doctor's Office, Katylynn said to Janelle, "Mama, I want to go back to the Unison States" (here name for the U.S... it's too cute right now for us to correct).

Janelle asked her if she wanted Moses to come back with us.  She said she did.  Janelle explained that if we want that to happen, we are going to have to stay some more days.  But she also asked Katylynn why she wanted to go back.  Her response (not word for word, but pretty close),

"Because I have so many more toys at home in the Unison States.  The boys and girls here don't have many toys.  You know Mama, I think we should go home to the Unison States and get some of our toys and bring them back here to the boys and girls who don't have many toys."

In an already emotional day, tears filled my eyes.  Tears of pride, for a little gal that God is building compassion inside.

My son has said that many times when he learns of all the things Jaydn grew up without. IE Toys, running water, etc. Its heart warming that children just GET IT!
