Happy Adoption Day

One year ago today, after traveling 30 plus hours, we arrived in Uganda and went from a family of  5 and became a family of 6. We had no idea what to expect, but God somehow blended all of our hearts into a family.

She was scared.  She was feisty.  We had read the books and attended the classes, but honestly we had  no idea what to expect.  At that moment, we just knew we were exactly where God wanted us to be.

She told us about a brother.  An older brother that she loved dearly.  We started praying for Him.

And...God told us to do it again. We got on another airplane and traveled 30 hours and God blended our hearts again.  We went from a family of 5 to a family of 7 in less than a year.

Today we celebrate Brenda's Adoption Day.  Tomorrow, we finalize Joseph's adoption in the US.  Both of them will now share our last name.  This is the final step in our adoption journey and they are officially ours.

It's been one of the most rewarding, God seeking, adventurous year of our lives.  When i reflect on all of the mountains God moved to bring these 2 kiddos home, I realize that this was His plan.  Not ours.

Brother and sister living under the same roof.  The way it should be.  

Happy 1 year to our lives being forever changed!  Thank you Lord. To YOU be the glory!
