Our roof is being replaced today. I have some sort of sinus issue, you know the kind where it hurts to move your head at all. . .super fun. When it rains, it pours.
AND we are beginning to wade through the paperwork and jump through the hoops to adopt our very own Eastern European angel. Oh, I tear up just thinking about it. Adoption is a leap of faith for any family but really, I cannot explain how terrified I am. I cannot think of any negative possibilities right now. I have been left broken hearted and empty handed twice, when I thought my arms and heart would be filled with a lovely child. I am really trusting God to take care of me and this precious child while we work to make him ours. I feel so blessed that God would entrust this angel to us! What an amazing honor!
We cannot disclose the exact child just yet, though I am super eager to share because he is just PERFECT! As soon as I can, you will all be treated to pictures and details!
After months of donating and advocating and praying and crying over these children I finally feel like I am DOING SOMETHING! The hoops and the paperwork. .well it is such a blessing!
I am joining a new family of amazing people that have adopted special needs children. The Reece's Rainbow Family! YAY! I feel so insecure. . .these families, these women that I have come to know and respect, well they are just so much cooler than I am! I feel like the red-headed step child, but I will take that! Anything to be a part of such an amazing community of people!
I am unsure how my blog will be impacted by this process, I am really hitting the ground running, hoping to expedite this process in any way I can. Someone is waiting for us!! I will do my level best to keep updating this with all the awesomeness that the future holds!
I just discovered this video, I don't know how I have missed it all these months, but it is amazing and showcases just how awesome these families and children are, and what a kick ass awesome organization Reece's Rainbow is.
Oh I am so excited and so nervous and SO BUSY! Please keep us in your prayers!!
