I had hoped and dreamed of the day that I would get to say (type) those words. After 7 years of waiting for God to bless us with a child and 20 months of being an approved, waiting, adoptive mother - my dream has come true. That feels like an understatement. God totally blew us out of the water with the amazing orchestration of our lives meeting up with our son's life.
It was late at night on a Thursday when we got the call - our son was on his way - his birthmother was in labor. Even with all of our careful planning and lists, it took us a half hour to get out the door and drive an hour to the hospital.
|Catching a few long blinks while waiting.|
Then it was time to leave. We were so excited and yet of course scared to leave the security of the hospital. The drive home felt so surreal, it was an hour drive that seemed to hurry past and then, we were home: Daddy, Mommy and Micah, the family that God created long before any of us were born.
We have been standing here watching God take care of every detail that we were worried about as well as new details that came up along the way. We have seen him give us way more than we ever thought possible. We know that as Micah grows up and we grow as parents our God will continue to orchestrate our lives to bring about all the glory due His awesome name.
We praise God for His awesome love for us! For being faithful in all His promises!
He gives childless couples a family, gives them joy as the parents of children.
