One year ago today I walked into S@nyu Babies Home in Ug@nda East Africa and have never, and will never, be the same....ever!
One year ago today my heart was shattered.
One year ago today I got to see what God sees everyday and why He says in His word for us to do something about it. In fact He says to care for these vulnerable treasures is undefiled before Him.
One year ago today I met my son whom has taught me more in the last year than any person alive.
My heart is heavy with so many thoughts and feelings as we walk through all of these one year anniversaries. One year since we boarded a plane, one year since meeting #5, one year since going before the high court, one year since the verbal ruling, one year since the visa was issued, one year since boarding a plane to come home, one year since stepping off the plane and into our family of 7 forever, forever.
It is sweet, so very sweet.
Words kind of escape me.
I am overflowing with gratitude to God.
Thank you God for taking me on this journey. Thank you God for using me to bring you glory through this. Thank you God for #5! God, you have made him fearfully and wonderfully. What an amazing blessing this child is. Thank you for allowing me to be his mommy. Thank you for teaching me all through out the year how to be his mommy. I could not imagine going through this life with out him. Thank you God for what you have taught my entire family. Thank you God for drawing all of my children to yourself though out this year. I praise your Holy name God. You are worthy so very very worthy. Amen
