Five months ago today we met her for the first time. It was a very special baby girl's 1st birthday and adoption day. She looked up at me with this sweet little sparkle in her eye, and it seemed like she was thinking,"Could you be someone special to me?" Wow was I in awe of her. It was the most emotional day of my life. There were so many questions swirling inside my head, "Would she like us?" "Would she be scared of us?" "How is this all going to work?" But even with all of that, it felt right, so right. She was meant to be ours.
When I think about that day and how far we've come in 5 short months, it stirs my soul and brings tears to my eyes. Wow, does God know how to put together families. Adoption is such a miracle and our sweet T is such a miracle.
I went back to this post which was the day before we left, there were 3 prayer requests. The first one was to prepare us for anything. . . our first days with her were pure miracle. She took to us right away and we can't imagine our life without her.
The 2nd prayer request was for Jonah and Lydia and everyone who was taking care of them. This prayer was also awesomely answered. Thank you grandma's and grandpa's aunts and uncles and even Jonah's 1st grade teacher who were so wonderful while were gone.
The third request was that the Lord lets us keep her. Please continue to pray this. We continue to wait on the legal risk component of this adoption. As I've shared before it is getting long and we are waiting.
