And life is full of surprises.
Yesterday I went to pick up my sister at her work (she's working as a nurse at a foster care for muslim children,most of them lost their parents in very traumatic ways).
I was there waiting in my car,but I don't know why I decided to enter the orphanage,and wait inside.Stayed there for a couple of minutes,when I felt something grabbing my leg,or better hugging my leg.I looked down and well I saw the most beautiful little girl...Lu'lu'ah.
And then something inside of me changed,I hold her in my arms,and I knew in that moment that I would never let her go.
They accepted me taking her to my home (thanks to my sister,working there helped alot) till the legal adoption paper be released.
Indeed life is full of surprises.
