blessed.


This is what I came home to after running errands yesterday.

Seriously, does it get any better?

I can't believe I have a baby in my arms on Mother's day. My heart is so full.

Heath and I are irrevocably (recognize that word, Twilight fans?) in love. I cannot even bear to think that this little guy won't be with us forever and ever. It makes my heart hurt to imagine giving him back. Once again - please pray. It may be months before we find anything out, but we know that we would be devastated if he left us.

Blah.

Needless to say, we've been a bit busy lately. I promise to update on how things are going as soon as I can tear myself away from my little peanut long enough.


Edit:: Happy Mother's Day to all you ladies out there. And, to those of you who are having a hard time today because you're still waiting for God to bless you with a little one - be patient. God is good and He wants to grant you your desires in HIS timing. Trust me, it's worth the wait!

Oh Erin, I am so so happy for you and Heath. It is so unfair that good people just desire something so so wonderful and so good and yet are not able to attain it.

Don't worry what might not be, just focus on the now and love the little man more and more and everything will work together perfectly.

I know you dont know me that well... but I know you through David and Megan, and found your blog. I was completely unaware of your struggles getting pregnant, but I am elated at your good news. I will keep you and Heath and baby J in my thoughts and prayers.
By the way the picture you posted above is absolutely adorable. I hope you are able to have many more moments like this in the future.

What a dream come true - on Mother's Day nonetheless.

I think those pictures with daddy sleeping with our little ones are the best pictures.
And yes, it gets better. SO MUCH BETTER. It's hard to think that when you have this awesome precious little baby in your arms how it could possibly get better, but it just does. Every single day! =)

Happy Mother's Day sweet girl.

I know it is beyond hard to get past the fear, but remember why God placed J in your life...to provide him with a loving, safe, stable, and incredible family. Regardless of how J came to you, or how any of our children came to us, God didn't promise us one more day. We all take it for granted that we'll have forever with our children...in adoption we are constantly reminded that these children are not ours but a gift from God. We are not promised one more day with them if it's "final" or not. Any of us can lose our children anyday and to let that fear steal our joy is heartbreaking to God. When you feel yourself focusing on the "what if's" pray over that sweet little man and picture him in the hands of Jesus...for that is where all our children really are.

I will be praying over all of you that you can enjoy this time and bond with your little guy...that doesn't seem to be a problem seeing the pictures.
