Approval Day--sweet surprise from a sweet friend!!
I will meditate on all Your work,
and talk of Your deeds...
You are the God who does wonders!
Moms, you know that anticipation you have when you are waiting to find out whether you are having
a boy or girl?
Well just over a week ago we received our REFERRALS and guess what....
It's a GIRL
It's ANOTHER GIRL
It's a BOY
It's ANOTHER BOY!!
Yeah, we kinda already knew that, but it is just a little more official and we are one step closer to bringing these kids home....
and AGAIN we are humbled that God
would entrust them to us.
We were so eager to get the referral paperwork--
if you are not really sure what that means,
it is all the information on each child--
their history, medical, social, as much info they can give us.
We were so excited to have it in our hands--
or inbox really--and printed and read through each one.
Then we are sad again.
Because we read about the loss
that brought them to this point.
And we are reminded that as wonderful and lovely adoption is, it exists because of some loss or tradegy.
And with the joy, excitement, and blessing, also comes grief, pain, loss.
Pray for us as we join our kids on their journey.
We desire healing for
all of us.
So the question we are getting is
"When do you go get your kids??"
