The SECRET We've Kept This Year

We've had a secret for about a year now...It began as a nudge from the holy spirit. They shared their thoughts with us. We all began to pray. They began a year-long process with its ups and downs, but it looks like it IS going to happen....I have had a photo on my phone in the grandblessing file for a couple of months...it's the front facing copy of the one below. We've prayed, believed, been frustrated and now.... I asked Arielle if I could just copy her thoughts for the blog...

From Arielle: We’ve been working on something incredible and life changing for almost a year now. As of end of July, we are officially licensed as foster parents! We’re excited to have a little guy about D’s age join our family “sometime soon” as we work towards adoption.

His story is all his to tell when and if he wants to but he’s truly a miracle and blessing, one we can’t wait to have join our family, adventures and life. It’s been a God thing from the beginning, and I fell in love the moment I saw him, and I’ve been getting all teary eyed about it frequently πŸ˜…πŸ˜ŠπŸ’™
I could write a whole book on my thoughts, emotions, prayers and dreams, all the things I’ve been learning, but for now We’d love prayers for our little guy and his people. Prayers as we transition to a family of FIVE. Prayers for the next legal steps and all the ups and downs we know it will involve (Hollywood makes it look so simple and rosy😏). Prayers for me as I navigate having two toddlers- three energetic wonderful boys πŸ€ͺπŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™
