Here.

Our two little beauties are finally here...and they are quite beautiful.  The little one is SUPER little and the two year old is a stinker (not quite a match for Lizzy but we will see).

As I felt slightly overwhelmed today a thought entered my head.  When I stand before the Lord, out of all the statements HE will make to me I know there is one that will never be said:

"I wish you would have helped less kids."

I know this to be the blood covered truth and when my days get hairy I will know that I am doing what I was CALLED to do.

How awesome! Little ones are hard but so rewarding. Praying you have a blessed Christmas. I love a house full of kids to bless on Christmas morning.

awesome! I am sure any foster parent has thoughts of 'it would be easier if we didn't have these kids' but you are right, its a calling, its a hard job and not meant for the weary..so here is to you finding a good routine that works for all! :)

How exciting!! I do miss the thrill of the call and the whole getting to know this new little being. Praying we get a bigger house and are able to foster again! As much as my heart sometimes dreads the pain, I also love the joy!

Goodness you've been busy. So glad you have two new little blessings to care for during this holiday season.
So soon, you might have triplets!!!

Yes! Yes! Amen!

Not only are you, physically, helping and caring for children, you are inspiring others to do the same.
