I have to admit that before we had kids, I hoped that any girls we had would look like their daddy. It wasn't long before Marianna came along and that wish began to become a reality in her tiny features. She definitely has characteristics from us both, but in my mind, she is her daddy all over.
But what has really blown my mind is the number of people (many of whom didn't know we adopted) have commented on how much Adrienne looks like Nathan. I smile and have to agree. We never expected that, but what a neat thing to be the case!
It wasn't until this morning that I saw the beautiful picture that the resemblance represents. Just as Adrienne looks like her adopted daddy, so God wants us to look like Jesus. The longer we are His children, the more we should become mirrors of Him! I've known for a long time that my spiritual adoption should have the lovely end-result of looking like my father, but how beautiful to see that represented through Adrienne.
