Wow! It has taken too long to be able to say those words! We are in our final hours of preparation. This morning, my workout is being replaced by the dreaded 'To-Do' list. I will only be too happy when every item is crossed off and we can do no more.
In just a couple days the face of our family will change, dramatically. God will have filled the gap between Lillie and Judah and I will be the proud mommy of a 21 yr. old, 20 yr. old, 10 yr old., 8 yr. old, 6 yr. old, 4 yr. old and 2 yr. old. How is that for family planning and spacing your children? The best part is, I didn't plan it at all. God did!
Yes, our little Moses is 4 already, according to their records. We would love to post his picture and smile but our agency requests that we wait until the adoption is final. So, wait we will.
For those who may not know Moses has a special need: Cerebral Palsy. We have been duly lectured on the difficulties that can be associated with such a special need. We just happen to think he had a greater special need which we are only too willing to help with: No parents or family. The rest are details that God will equip us to deal with as we face them.
Hang on, Moses! Your life is about to change. What you knew to be true isn't the truth. Your circumstances have lied to you. You DO have a family! You have a Daddy and Mommy who love you. You have brothers and sisters who are excited to see you. You have an extended family that is waiting to get to know you. More importantly, you have a God, who we will teach you about, who has planned for us a day of meeting. He has a future and a hope for you. He is restoring to you all you lost. Son, your world is about to be rocked. But don't worry, we'll be with you every step of the way and you will never be alone again......
