Lu'lu'ah by KalebMinau Lu'lu'ah by KalebMinau
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.

Congratulations, Kaleb! I read about this on your sister's page and I just wanted to wish you all the best. Being a parent is very hard, and very rewarding and I pray that everything with the adoption goes well and you will both be blissfully happy for many years to come. She's beautiful, by the way! :-)

And she's a little Muslim child... that's amazing and absolutely wonderful that you would do this. It really puts light on the harsh feelings between those two worlds. A story like this could change the hatred in the hearts of so many.
This is so movie-esque.
You truly are a great person.

Yes,she is,and it's wonderful and unique when she calls me baba (dad in arabian).
It's a very difficult thing about these "two worlds" indeed.My friends think I'm totally crazy,my father..well I don't want to talk about him,because he's not important in this matter.What really matters here,is that my daughter is happy,this is the most important thing to me. =)

That's so incredibly sweet! She's already recognizing that :) I'm sorry to hear if your father doesn't approve. The most important thing is your own feelings, and that you're happy and she's happy.

She doesn't know her birthday? Guess you'll have to celebrate the date of her adoption, then, instead :)
