Big Day Details
Luke was well prepared for us. We have to thank the family he was with. Clearly, he had seen our pictures. In fact, when Luke was brought out he saw Mario, said Baba! and leaned towards him, wanting to be picked up. It was awesome! And just like all our other boys (except Judah) he was ALL ABOUT DADDY. I'm ok with that. Little boys are made to want daddy by God's design.
Finally meeting Joy was wonderful. Had it not been for the work God has called her to and she so faithfully completes, we wouldn't have our Luke.
We also met the Turks. (Luke's former foster family). The time we were with them seemed so little. Amanda did her best to prepare us for Luke as well. We were given sweet little details that have made the transition all the more easy for both Luke and us. Thank you seems to be too little compared to the magnitude of what the Turks have given us.
God was faithful! The day could have been like many of those in the room with us. He could have been crying or upset or distraught. And rightfully so. Everything was changing for him. Again. Instead, God gave us a wonderful first meeting.
"The Lord is good to all,
and His mercy is over all that He has made.
All Your works shall give thanks to you, O Lord,
and all your saints shall bless you!
