I just had two very interesting phone calls...you know how it is sometimes..you're afraid to answer the phone! lol! The first one was another foster mom in need of respite from next Wed till the following Monday. It's a GIRL! She is 2 1/2 and a tiny peanut. Hearing her story broke my heart and I am blessed to be able to help this family out while they take care of some very sick family members out of state.
The second phone call was from Baby's biological brother's adoptive mom. We have tried a couple of times now to get together but it seems as though things keep getting in the way. She called just to give me some amazing encouragement. She is a strong Christian woman and her words blessed me over and over. She knows the people that Baby could potentially go to and she said her prayer is for us to keep him, but to give it all to God and let him lead. These are things that I have been doing and praying as well, but somehow hearing encouraging words from another person just melts me :)
My prayer has been and continues to be(more details opened up today) that God's will be done. If God can receive all the glory and Baby can fulfill his purpose here in our home then we will be ecstatic to make him our forever son. If he can't fulfill his purpose here and God needs that to happen somewhere else, then we trust Him and of course the grief will be tremendous, but knowing that it's what GOD willed for our son then I will have a great amount of peace as well.
Blessed this Friday afternoon and ready to have a weekend of celebration! Our Moosie will officially be dedicated to the Lord on Mother's Day and it's Andrew's adoption day too! I truly am one blessed Mommy...even the not so pleasant Mommy stuff gets pushed aside when you are squeezed tight and told how much they love you :)
