I woke up this morning to a text message from Karen telling me that Jean-Roni passed away yesterday.
1 month ago, I spend 4 days 24-7 with Jean-Roni.
And now he’s dead.
I can’t grasp it.
Karen & I have daydreamed of an older Jean-Roni coming to stay with us.
I’ve wondered about his little face – what would it look like when kwashiorkor was not turning him ‘white’ like me?
And I agonized over turning him over to the busy Rescue Center with 60+ kids & no A/C. The workers gave me a funny look when I tried to read the ‘instructiona’ I had translated on google, explaining that Jean-Roni liked to have the little Walmart lantern turned on when he cried at night.
I miss him – I already have for 35 days.
I mourn the hope for a part in his future.
But I also TRUST in my Sovereign God, that He loved Jean-Roni before me & He has rescued him! Everyday from here on out is kwashiorkor-free.
