At the end of September, I had a very vivid dream...the kind that feels so real.
In my dream, it was very cold outside and I was in a strange place....another country, perhaps. There was a precious little girl named Olga who was running away from something. When I asked her what was wrong, she told me that some bad men were after her. I scooped her up, ran and hid. I held her close in my arms and told her it was ok...she was safe now. Then I woke up.
I woke with such an overwhelming desire to "rescue" a little girl, knowing that there are so many who are being chased by the enemy.
In early December, a friend of mine posted a link on Facebook to this blog about a precious girl with Down Syndrome named Olga.
It so very much touched my heart. I have closely followed this blog ever since, posting links frequently on Facebook, trying to get others to see the stories. You see, God had prepared me with that dream...and now He was showing me the ugly truth of it.
My eyes were opened.
This sweet Olga has been so much a part of my thoughts and prayers and heart since then. She is what prompted me to start this blog. There are many other facets to my story with Olga that show how much God is in the details. Maybe someday I will share those pieces of the story. But, let me just say that she will always be in my prayers and a part of my life....for she truly changed me.
Olga was a Divine Interruption.
