"Like cold water to a weary soul is good news from a distant land."
I do believe that giving referrals is possibly the best part of my job as an adoption coordinator. [Maybe only surpassed by the joy of passing court or getting visas.] There is nothing like being able to call and introduce a family to the child that will bless them for the rest of their lives. There is nothing like hearing those happy tears on the other side of the phone line. There is nothing like knowing you had a tiny bit to do with a child and family being matched for an eternity.
I've been privileged to give 3 referrals in the past week. Three great kids to three amazing families. The joy of giving a referral carries me through a lot of less joyful parts of my job. Thank you Lord, for giving me this privilege.
