Today is my birthday. Thirty eight. But I still feel eighteen. How did I even get to thirty eight so fast?
It has been a blessed day. My family spoiled me. I feel so incredibly loved.
But truthfully, I feel so disheartened about our adoption paperwork. Discouraged…but not defeated! I just cannot wait to see the end of it all. I feel like we have been in battle since day one.
The Lord has been so good to me today–He has breathed peace into my weary heart. It is all good.
I absolutely cannot wait to see two more beauties in these family pics this time next year. My last birthday ever as a mommy of five.
There are truly no words to express the love in my heart for this man. Wow, I am finally as old as he was the day we met. Funny.
The leader of the pack. My first born treasure. The one who showed me that being a mother is what I was called to be.
My Chinese beauties. The girls who planted the seed of adoption in my heart.
“I prayed for this child and the Lord has granted me the desire of my heart” 1 Sam 1:27
The baby I dreamed of having for two years. My littlest angel.
The joy of my heart. My tender sweetheart. My second born mighty warrior.
How blessed I am. Thank you Lord Jesus for thirty eight years of life–and for these whom you have blessed me with.
Thank you for all the sweet words of encouragement, and the prayers yesterday. They mean the absolutely world to me. I will update tomorrow about our paperwork, and where things stand.
