bring our children home

I came across this song today. These words moved me...

(speaking to the Lord Jesus)
You will finish what You started
And Your plans for us are good
Help us cling to what You promised
You are faithful, You are sure to...

Bring our children home
Bring our children home
We sing Abba, Father You are able
To bring our children home

...a tree of life

...a tree of life

It's been exactly four years since we started the paper trail that led us to our daughter, Lilah Grace.

What an amazing road our Father has been leading us on. He has taught us so much and blessed us more than we even imagined possible. It has been beyond incredible to parent our beautiful daughter, who was chosen especially for our family.

Well, the Lord has spoken to our hearts and we are thrilled that He has shown us His perfect will - we are adopting again, from China. We couldn't be more excited! Although, if I'm perfectly honest, I do feel humbled and unworthy of His request.

Our hearts are already growing and expanding with the love we feel for this new little one, our child. A child that is more than likely already born. Already God knows and cares for this little one, isn't that incredible? I find it both amazing and staggering.

This verse stands out to me, as we move forward in this adoption process: And now abideth faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:13)

We can't wait to share our love with our newest little bundle. We are so excited!
