These past few months have flown by…literally. I don’t even remember most of them.
Some days, I know God just saves my heart from some despair that happens with living life, a crazy messy life.
Our oldest is graduating soon. Then right after that, all the kids will be following in his footsteps in their respected career fields.
After being their teacher since that first day when the nurse let us drive away from the hospital without any type of manual, I see my “job” as his teacher coming to an end, with joy. He can still seek me out for counsel if he desires, but my “job” will be complete. Our relationship will no longer be the same. We will both be adults. In fact, I have been seeing him make “adult” decisions without any instruction lately. I am seeing mine and my husband’s years of labor coming to fruition. It has been a very sweet adventure.
I keep thinking I will regret something that has happened in our life and I don’t. Not one thing.
God had a purpose for everything right or wrong that has happened in our life. It has made us stronger in Him. Sometimes HIS answer was NO and sometimes YES despite what we wanted. Yet, HE has always proved FAITHFUL.
So what about the Adoption?
Well, we know nothing.
That is not entirely true.
We know the Lord is Faithful and what He has started He will finish.
However, we have been making a few steps forward:
- David and I are now certified in Pediatric CPR and 1st Aid.
- Our home aka The Lighthouse has passed inspection for our adoption. Can I just say, this was a huge feat! Our Lighthouse has been in a huge live-in remodel for the past 3 years, thus #DIYplus5. It was a joy to hear our social worker say we just needed to add a latch to a medicine/cleaning closet. Whoop!
- We have started buying a few things, here and there. This was a huge accomplishment. I didn’t want to see anything up that was not going to be in use or to be seen as a constant reminder there was no baby in our home.
- We have people praying for us constantly. I love when someone asks or tells us that they have been thinking of us! That means God has placed us on their hearts and we appreciate the prayers!!! The Lord has given us an unexplainable peace about the entire process. I love when He has our lives in His amazing, loving and trustworthy hands.
This week I can’t wait to share with you about my room and how we decided to decorate our bedroom and the nursery which are side by side.
If you missed the beginning story, here is our story about our new journey, adoption.
Blessings to you! You are loved!
