Going & Coming

Yesterday was a day of "going" as well as a day of "coming!" We brought one of our little ones to meet her forever family. Goodness, how I love adoption days! A verse that immediately comes to mind is Romans 8:28:

"And we know that in ALL things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose."

That's what adoption is all about. God takes something has painful and heartbreaking as abandonment and turns it into something beautiful and redemptive, adoption. I love being able to witness that transition and change. I see when our kids come to us they have broken hearts. They may not know what love is. And as the days and months go on, I see those little smile come out.... they let love in. And then when they meet their forever families? It's truly seeing God in action. No, the kids may not fully understand but watching their parents and the love that pours out from them is amazing.
I not only was able to watch this little one meet her forever family but also about 15-20 other families who were also meeting their children yesterday. I have tears in my eyes just thinking about it. Thinking how much love and prayer was in that room.

This post is titled "Going & Coming" right? Well I've talked about the going.... would you like to hear about the coming?

That is right..... we have new baby! This little one has a long road ahead of her, but we know that she has hope. There is always hope.
"Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow."
Isaiah 1:17
