We’ve all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That’s who we really are. ~ J. K. ROWLING
This quote couldn’t be more perfect to describe Lizzie. And just who is Lizzie? Lizzie is a girl. An orphan. Surrounded by mostly darkness, both literally and figuratively. But who chooses the light whenever she can. It guides her, and she is often found seeking it out. Lizzie, who could so easily choose the darkness and let it consume her, she does not. She chooses the light. She can sense the goodness in the light, and it draws her in. Just as we can sense the goodness in her. She is captivated by the light, and somehow in that act alone, those around her are captivated by her.
But Lizzie needs a miracle. Lizzie ‘ages out’ in 57 days. F.I.F.T.Y. S.E.V.E.N. Let that number sink in. It seems totally impossible. But we witness miracles every day, so we pray that now it is Lizzie’s turn for her miracle. So while Lizzie continues to seek out the light, we will continue to seek out her forever family.
