Occasionally I get picture updates of Little Dude, my first foster baby, who left me in September. I am so grateful for this gift. To get to see him via photo and see how much he has grown is a huge comfort to me. I got one such picture about a week ago. In the picture, he was wearing the same bib that I posted about back in September just after he left me, the one that I have ready to be framed in a shadow box, the one that says “Little Dude” on it.
The family members that have guardianship over him have no idea that I call him Little Dude or that the bib they chose to put on him that day would have any special or significant meaning to me. That’s what I call a God thing. God shows me that he loves me in such intimate ways. I am blessed.
