Monday's Miracle: Piney's Breakthrough

Beth over at a Mom's Life is hosting Miracle Monday.

You can visit her site to read about miracles that are happening in people's lives.

I thought this was a great idea- to share how God is working in our lives.

I thought I would post about our recent experience with Piney.

Piney and I were watching some of her old YouTube videos.

It was fun to watch the videos of when she first arrived home and how much she has grown. She was laughing and smiling at all of them.

However, when I played her the video (below) of the trip when we brought her home she watched mesmerized and then when it was over she started bawling.

Then she made me replay the video for her at least 20 times. She cried through each one.

Then finally, she turned to me and said.

"I done now mommy. I done. My old house was dirty mommy. Dirty. Dirty. This house is clean mommy. Clean. I happy now mommy. I happy now." And she held me and didn't want to let go.

Wow. When they're so little you wonder what they remember, but she obviously has some memory of the orphanage. That's amazing.

Oh, that breaks my heart.

I think it is amazing and truly a miracle that she realizes at such a young age how lucky she is to be a part of such a wonderful family.

Thanks for being the very first to participate in Miracle Monday!

How sad. I wonder if they were mean to her at that place.
I am so glad you have her safe and happy with you.
She is such a beautiful precious child.

My daughter was adopted from Russia at 22 months. She is now 6 and seems to have no memories of her early life. My heart aches for her sometimes thinking of what she lacked...reading your post and watching the video touched my heart..what would our lives be like without our daughters and their's without us?
Miracles do happen...people are brought together for a reason!
Thanks for sharing! Ann

thanks for sharing - we adopted our daughter from the same baby home in March 2007 - our daughter is about 6 months older than Piney. She seems to have no memory of her life in Russia but I'll bet she does. And for Piney to express it so well - amazing. Wishing you all continued happiness..........
