She Once Was Lost...

This is truly a story only God could write...


Just three weeks ago our home grew again..

Authorities finding that a child had been abandoned
 immediately made contact with our home.

Just hours passed and soon she would arrive.

We would find that,

Her name is 


8 years old and a little spitfire.

She is sassy and she is sweet.

We'd also find that she has epilepsy and some brain trauma.

She would be counting and then forget what she was doing.

We soon realised she also has some memory loss.

As the days would pass,

Claire would share how she wanted to go home.

Yet we had no idea where home could be.

We prayerfully placed an ad in the newspaper,

looking for anyone who may have known her.

But to our great sadness no one responded.


Little did we know that across the city,

a mother lay awake...

Wondering where her little girl could be?


Flash back to December 31st, 2014

New Years Eve.

A little village bustling with life.

People excitedly preparing for the celebration.

Mama goes to the bathroom and comes back to find her little girl missing.

"Clarie..Claire..Claire..She screams.."

Yet there is no reply...

She begins franticly searching and finds nothing.

Hours pass...

She continues searching...

Then days pass....

She continues searching...

Then weeks pass....

She continues searching...

She wonders what could have happened to her little girl.

Memories would flicker through her mind...

She searched and searched.

But as she continued she found no reply....

Her heart ached for her little girl....

Where oh' where could she be?

She began to fear the worst..

So she prayed...

Then the most amazing thing happened.


{Stay tuned for part two.}
