Time.


Back, going on two years ago now, I had a different blog and right before I shut it down I also went to my agency and picked up a little 18 mo. old girl named Lizzy.

After a few weeks in I wrote this:




Who would have thought we would go through so much? Who would have thought it would all come to a screeching halt? Who would have thought I would be 7 mo. pregnant when they terminated her parents rights?


Who would have thought?


Only God. Only God.

Im constantly amazed at the "little things" just like this. Like writing in my journal to our "foster baby to come" on the same exact day he was born, six weeks before we would meet him!

I love that last "I have a feeling it is gonna be good." :) I am sure it has not been pleasant with everything you've been through, but the finality of that statement in light of how things have turned out just makes me smile.

We took our foster baby to the mall the other day and were complimented by no less than a dozen people on how sweet she is. One lady couldn't get a good look at the baby's face, as she was sleeping on Andy's shoulder, and asked us who the baby looked more like. She looked positively scandalized when I laughed and said, "Her actual parents, probably." Then, when I explained, she offered us her two tween sons.

Simply amazing how God works out even the tiny details when we just wait and wonder.
