Adoption musings by a 4 yr old!!

So, we came to Giddings today after the Pumpkin Patch in Elgin. We picked my dad up at his house and then headed to the bank and to lunch. After we left the bank I was telling him about Amy adopting 5 siblings and how much I admire her!! Here is the conversation that Perryn had with her Big Daddy!!

Perryn: Big Daddy, you need a adopt some children.
BD: Well can I just adopt you?

P: No, because I already have a family.
BD: Then who do I need to adopt?

P: Orphans that live in orphanages in China or Africa.

BD: Really well, do I have to love them, feed them, and take care of them?

P: Yes. Your good at that.
BD: Do I love you and take care of you?

P: Yes.

BD: So do you think that I have enough practice to adopt a child?

P: Yes.

BD: Where will they sleep?

P:In my spend the night room with me. I think you should adopt 64 or 25 children. Maybe as many as you can.

My dad and I are smiling really big trying not to laugh! I think Perryn would love to have a big family like Amy!!

precious. love that cutie picture, too. sounds like Madeline asking me if we can get 4 boys and 4 girls and buy lots of beds...I love their hearts, and hope Sam and I can get and keep our hearts in that precious place of "Yes, Lord, Yes, Lord, Yes, Yes Lord, Amen!" Whatever it is - just to be matter-of-factly simple about it. He already has the provision or he wouldn't ask us, and our kids just know that in their soul, don't they? Man, when did I start to forget...okay, writing a post instead of a comment. Gotta run!
