Sarah Wright takes some time away from the kids to write in her journal.

July 19, 2008, Nashville, TN, 11:29 a.m., D.S.T.~

Dear Journal~

Sarah Wright here.  Sorry for not writing; things here have been crazy at best. 

We will be adopting little Xaviar, the little boy from Mexico, within a month or two; the adoption's been approved, which has been a huge answer to prayer!  So it looks like Brookie, Emma, Mwugu, and Rheese will have a new playmate in little Xaviar!

As you can imagine, we're beyond excited!  It's taken away some of the sting of not knowing anything about Audrey Callaway, my sister-in-law,  or her family.  Happily, though, they have been found; they are safe, and they are living somewhere else, under assumed names, for their protection. It really scared us for a while, not knowing whether they were dead or alive; it was a very trying time for all of us, but for especially my husband.

Audrey is his sister.

Susie, Audrey's oldest daughter, is doing surprisingly well herself; it's been nothing short of a miracle!  She's learning how to drive, trying to get her life back on track.  The change in her has been incredible; it's very refreshing to see; that girl has been through far too much than anyone has a right to go through!

We have pictures of Xaviar, our new son to be, hanging up with our own family pictures; he is such a beautiful little boy with short, straight black hair, huge obsidian eyes that miss very little, and an angelic face.  I look at his picture, and my heart absolutely melts, each and every time!  I've already fallen head over heels in love with him, and so has the rest of the family!

Tomorrow at church they're having a special guest to sing during the offeratory/collection of tithes; it's none other than the daughter of one of my dearest friends, Ronee' Reaux, who's been blessed with a marvelous talent.  At the age of fifteen, she has a beautiful, soaring soprano that can send chills down your back; it's clear that she's anointed for music!  She's been given a gift from God, and she uses that gift very well.

Her brother, Johnathon, meanwhile, will be signing along with Ronee' as she sings; that way, the deaf members of our church will follow along with the music.  Johnny sings, too, and he's very talented, too, even with living with a progressive neuromuscular disease that's left him dependent on an electric wheelchair and a trache in order to breathe (he has that because his lungs are weak).  God's been using Johnny, too, and it's incredible to see what God's been doing in this special young man's life!

As you can imagine, I'm looking forward to it.  I always get blessed big time whenever Johnny and Ronee' perform!  Everybody does!

Tomorrow night is our church's annual family picnic at the park not far from the church.  There'll be games, contests for the kids, opportunity for fellowship for the adults, and of course, lots of food to eat.  It promises to be a fun time for all who attend, especially since the weather has been delightful lately:  sunny, bright, temps in the lower to middle eighties.  Just perfect weather; we couldn't be more blessed! :)

And to think that the next time we have a church function, our little son from Mexico will be here!  We are already counting the days to when little Xaviar will be with us; we canNOT wait!!  I know I am going to cry buckets of tears when he comes off that plane and into my arms (not to mention, my heart)!

Well, Rheese, our youngest, is crying; have to see what's going on, so I guess I will run off for now.  I will write in here again soon; if not, Wayne will.  It's just that he's been getting over his last surgery, and it took a lot out of him.  Take care and may God bless you as much as He's been blessing our family as of late!  Talk to you soon!

~Love, your friend, Sarah Wright. :)

Sarah's name has been named in the Bible as one of the chosen ones by God, and as a repository of His miracles I have no doubt that Him have a plan for this little Sarah as well.

A great write my friend. You most certainly have the imagination and gift for creating such lovable characters. It's great to read about how Ronee and Johnathon are doing. With the two angelic voices filling the church I'm certain there will not be a dry eye in the building! Keep on writing!
