As we are getting ready for this time of year and enjoying our time together as a family we can't help but know that our other child is not yet here with us and we pray they are with us next year, actually I am assuming they will be!!! As we decorate, buy gifts and prepare you still feel like you are missing someone and that is a bit hard! So, we pray a lot for them and where they could be right now and their situation. I pray so often for God's arms to be wrapped around them carrying them and protecting them and whispering to them that everything will be ok. I pray for their birth family and the situation they are in and the decisions they will be making or already have made and how hard it must be for them to make that decision to give up their child for another to raise... It is a little overwhelming everything that can and does surround the adoption process. Things you don't think about when your pregnant with a baby in your tummy. But, knowing that God is preparing their family for the decision they will make and preparing our hearts and our child's heart for each other is an utterly amazing and overwhelming sense of peacefulness. This time of year and everyday for that matter is about God and for God and through this journey of ours to get our other child we will praise God and give Him all the glory, because HE IS GOOD!!!
