Lovely Ladybugs

This evening, I cried. The wait is long and hard and worth it. Most days, I hold it all together quite well, but tonight a good cry was a good release. As the tears flowed and John (very sweetly and patiently) reminded me of how close we are to going to get Naiya, he said, “Hey, look, a ladybug”.

There was a ladybug on our dining room chandelier- right above where I was sitting.


Ladybugs are a special symbol in the China adoption community. When a ladybug shows up, it’s viewed as good luck and a reminder that great things are heading your way- like a precious child!

I am not superstitious, but I do believe in God’s perfect timing and reminding me that He sees and He knows and that our waiting is not in vain.

Thankful. Ready to go get her. Realize that God wants us to trust Him. And reminded that “those who wait on the Lord will renew their strength”.

Liking this ladybug today.

  1. I found your blog on Facebook, on the Fall DTC group…just wanted to let you know I was thinking of you! We are on our second China adoption, and I thought this time around the wait might be easier, but it definitely is not!

  2. Wow! A great reminder of who is in control of this journey. A ladybug … One of God’s smallest creations but for those of use in the “China Adoption” world it signifies so much more. May this visual be a special reminder that God’s timing is perfect and He has Naiya is His loving hands right now!! Love you all and praying for peace.

  3. I can’t remember where you are at in the process, but we found a ladybug in our daughters room the day before TA for her! I can’t tell you how highly it would be to find a ladybug in her room, let alone this time of the year 🙂
