While surfing on the internet, I ran across something interesting. I found out in the China adoption community ladybugs are considered lucky. Since we do not believe in luck but the divine providence of God - I found it fascinating. Why? The girl's bathroom is decorated in ladybugs. This was just one more confirmation for me that we are following God's will for our family. Here is an excerpt from a website that I found why this is:
Perhaps you've wondered why ladybugs are considered lucky in the China adoption community. We have too, and found out that though ladybugs are red, (the good luck color in China), the root of this belief is not found in Chinese culture.
In the late 1990's in southern China, international adoption programs began growing rapidly as people learned of the many benefits of Chinese adoption. One Fall the ladybug (Chinese beetle) population grew unusually large in Guangzhou, China. Guangzhou is a necessary stop for all Americans, Brits, Australians and Canadians adopting from China. (The city houses many Consulate-General offices.) This large ladybug population explosion was thought to be lucky for the many adopting families flowing into China.
God is truly amazing how He can further confirm His Will.
