Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." John 14:6 (NIV)

Faith's Foster Mother had taught her a sign for please, so that we would know that she was asking for something politely.  I taught her the sign for "more."  She likes to eat and I wanted to make sure that she was getting enough. 

Tonight, she was teasing me and laying on the bed.  I was attempting to put her pajama top on over an undershirt.  She would roll over and giggle.  I started to tickle her.  We did this over and over again.  I was done playing and she looked up at me with a huge smile and she signed "more."  I said, "Oh, you want more tickling?" 

Of course I couldn't stop playing then.  So I tickled her a little more and let her avoid me putting on her shirt.

Once I finally got her to bed she was playing with her glow worm doll.  She gave it several kisses last night.  So tonight I decided I would kiss the glow worm, too.  She blew me a kiss.  That's progress in the right direction.

I am so thankful that she allows me to hug and kiss her.  She hugs me sometimes.  She has been with me for a week.  God has brought me so much joy.

She has adjusted so well that I am hoping to go to church on Sunday.   Here is the Bible verse that God laid upon my heart today.  It is from my devotional book, but it wasn't the verse of the day.

So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.  Romans 10:17

I am signing "more" right now.  God Bless!
