Happy Home Forever Day!!!

I was supposed to publish this yesterday but I forgot..... 
but when you read further, you'll understand why :)

This is another bit of a cross post,
but again, when you read further, you'll understand why :)

Four years ago (yesterday), we touched down in Newark airport with the 5th sweetest gift we had ever been given. Happy Home Forever Day, Li'l Empress!
And I think it's so fitting that (yesterday), we officially accepted the referral of the 6th sweetest little gift God is entrusting to our home. Welcome to the family, Brynna Rose :)

So, as you can imagine, we've been really busy since Monday night doing our "due diligence" researching and educating ourselves on the need of our new daughter. All while praying for wisdom and guidance AND checking the pulse of all the Gang members here in the house for their thoughts and feelings. There's a lot I can (and maybe some day will) say about this journey, but for now, I think that the God moment of saying YES to this sweet little one on the same day that our Little Empress became a US citizen AND joined our whole family's crazy gang is testament enough to how He loves to put the details together for us.

And now, I move to preparing Shaggy for his big adventure. And I guess I should catch up on all the laundry and paperwork that has piled up around my ears while I was crash-coursing on all things medical!

That is such wonderful news, praise God! and for His wonderful timing that speaks to our hearts.

I wanted to stop by and thank you for linking up with the Christian Adoption Link up (and for posting about it on Monday!)! More importantly, congratulations on your newest "faith journey"! Praying you through and hoping you find lots of prayer and encouragement through the link up!

Congratulations on 4 years with your Empress and accepting Brynna's referral! Those 4 years have gone by in a flash...for us, too! I have gone from blogging (mom to 2 + wife+ full-time teacher = no energy/time) to lurking but I have been following your story as you adopt again and have lifted you up in prayer thru it all!
