Oh what a glorious day yesterday was. I got to meet the sweetest, most adorable little girl. I met her mommy through my blog. They actually live in our area.
They came and spent the afternoon with us. I just knew God had a purpose in it. Doesn’t He always?
He knew it would be good for my heart.
Baby M is almost one. Such a teeny, tiny little angel. She is pure joy.
This little treasure has Down syndrome. Would you believe that she is the youngest child with Down syndrome I have ever had the privilege of meeting?
I confess, recently I have been sharing my fears with my hubby. I have shared my deepest fears–and my heavenly hopes with my love. I have questioned my ability to raise Hailee and Harper. I have doubted myself and wondered if I can even do this. Fear is such a miserable thing. Over the last few days Anthony has reassured me time and time again, constantly pointing me back to the ONE who has called us.
It’s just one of those things that I know in my heart to be truth…but hearing it from Anthony is so reassuring.
I love that man so much!
Don’t get me wrong, I am so incredibly excited to be adding these two angels to our family. I feel so blessed that the Lord has chosen us to be their family. I constantly wonder what we ever did to deserve such a HUGE blessing. But, there are times when I allow fear to creep into those places in my heart where I feel vulnerable. Those places where I feel like there is no way I can ever be a good mommy to Hailee and Harper. The enemy sure does know our weaknesses, doesn’t he?
Yesterday was such divine confirmation from the Father. He brought that precious little girl into my home to show me that I CAN do this! As I cuddled her, I felt such a reassurance…an incredible sense of knowing that I know that this IS the path He has chosen for us. I felt such peace. Every fear, every insecurity was gone. Absolutely gone.
Oh my goodness, friends, today I have such an excitement in my heart. I absolutely cannot wait to bring our sweet girls home.
Thank you, Lisa, for spending the afternoon with us…and for sharing your angel with me. At her tender age, God is already using her. He showed me through your daughter that I CAN do this….and it will be good. No, it will be amazing.
His goodness overwhelms me.
My arms are aching to hold them tight.
I know that there will still be those moments of fear. I’m human, and I allow the enemy access to places in my heart where he should not be allowed. But I can honestly say that no matter what may lie ahead of us as we adopt these two children, it is going to be okay–because my God said so.
Thank you to all of you who took time to share your diaper recommendations with me. It was so lovely to meet a few new friends too.
I have started going through some of the websites you shared with me–it’s going to take some time. I am so grateful for the advice and tips regarding using cloth diapers.
Many think I’m totally nuts to be considering this with my two little angles. If I stop and ponder it a little too long, I put myself in that category too. But this is something I do need to at least give a shot. If it works, great. If not, then at least I know I tried.
Love you all.
