It has been some time since I have posted. But now I get to post the happiest news ever..it is that we are finally HOME!!!!!
We have been home now 3wks now, the time sure does go by so fast.
As I sit here and look at our beautiful daughter, it is all so surreal. I really takes my breath way at times. I can’t believe that a yr and half ago, The Lord planted a seed and now that seed has grown.
I am in complete awe in His love for our family. It has not been an easy road at all with al the things we have gone through during this time..but I have seen beauty in it all…even death.
God is GOOD ALL THE TIME!!!!!!
I will not go into our daughters life leading up to us, because well that’s her story to tell.
But I will say this..our God was there ever step of the way leading to us. He showed up time and time again while in Uganda.
As most of you know I broke my left foot, then a few days later broke my right baby toe. Such a long story…I just couldn’t believe that only after three days with our daughter this was happening and my husband was leaving in just a few short days…What was I to do????
Well God is that good..He has planned months before the meeting of new friends, whom I was able to stay with while in UG…Praise God!!!! I could not of done this with out Shawn and Sarah and little Jethro.
My total time in UG was 4wks start to finish…unheard of. When most people had to wait hours at at govermental appts, I waited an hour or under. When people had to wait weeks for documents, we waited few short days. When they said you don’t want this judge or that judge…He gave us the perfect one for us..whom said YES!!!!
My little faith doubted, feared and struggled. But God’s faithfulness NEVER left.
ONLY GOD! You can’t look at our story and NOT see God!!
He took a broken, messed up women..planted a seed of HOPE, FAITH and REDEPTION. He started and saw it to the end. PRAISE GOD!!
We are so in love with this little princess that I can’t get enough of her. She is a pure joy and is adjusting well for the most part.
I see things daily that remind me she was in an orphanage…but those things will fade soon. They are not big things but things that do matter. But through that, she smiles all the time…she is happy, like I haven’t seen a child.
From our family to yours we want to thank each and every person one of you that have Prayed, financially suppoted us, bought something from my little Etsy shop or paticipated in a fundraiser. We could not of done it without you.
You had a HUGE part in bringing our beauty home. Forever we will be in gradituted. My heart sweels thinking about it.
This is not the end of our story…stay tuned.
To GOD BE THE GLORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
