It's been quite awhile since an update, but I just didn't have it in me to post what all we were dealing with. I actually still won't post all that we went through, but will tell you it was very difficult and painful, but praise God He sustained us. We are so grateful to God that He drew us so near to Him. We certainly don't like the trials that we go through at times, but one thing in us remained consistent- our trust in a sovereign God. Nothing that we went through didn't first pass through His fingers. That being said we are grateful for His love for us, and that He allowed Brian and I to grow closer together, and depend on Him and trust His plan even when it didn't match ours. A very wise man at our church who's faith in God puts mine to shame at times gave me Psalms 37 to cling to. Oh how healing God's word is! All that we went through the last couple of months truly was for our good. We are forever grateful for our family, church family and friends that supported us during very uncertain times in this process. Thank you all for speaking truth into our lives when the enemy seemed to only want us to think the worst. God gave us the desire in our hearts for our three girls and He made that desire grow stronger and stronger with each obstacle. We didn't give up, even when it seemed hopeless.
With all of that said here's for the good news, no great news, no wait a minute amazing news, no that's still not good enough, here's to the miraculous news, "Major papers are sent!" We are so grateful to our new agency and how amazing they have been with us, always getting back with us right away and being such encourager's to us and repeatedly telling us how it was their pleasure to work with us to get "OUR GIRLS", yes they said "OUR GIRLS" from day one! God is so good to us, He not only allowed for this process to move very quickly with this new agency, but showed us that transparency and honesty is always the route to take. HE blessed us with the most amazing, encouraging, and loving new agency that knew all about us and loved us. How blessed we feel to be working with them. We are so very grateful that God made it clear that we were not to give up and that He would work out all the details and for us to continue to trust Him. Thank you Lord!!!!
We now get weekly updates on our girls, which is so very exciting. They have been moved to a transition home that's providing them with great care. Each new picture has them smiling more and more. I can't even begin to tell you how much we love them already. Our boys are thrilled to be getting sisters and get so excited every time something is dropped off at our home for them. Oh how seriously awesome it is to have sweet little girl clothes, and baby dolls in our home. Their room will be ready in the next couple of weeks, how exciting to have pink paint!
Thank you all so much for your prayers, words of encouragment, and support. We are so overwhelmed by the outpouring of love for our girls already. We are so looking forward to our first visit to meet them. Brian and I talked forever last night about what we will say to them first and... well... we still don't have a clue. We are confident though that God will help us with that and we can't wait!
This song is one Brian would sing to me at night while I laid in bed needing to be reminded of the truth's of God. May you cling to the truth that HE IS FAITHFUL!!!
