Nothing is impossible with God

How do I even begin this post?

So many thoughts, so few words

In the past 24 hours, we have (finally) learned how God plans to add to our family. We are thrilled to announce the addition of a little girl to this crazy family.  There have been many moments of tear-filled eyes, goose bumps, excited screams, and confirmation.

We are:
     Awe struck
     The recipent of such amazing grace
     A bit scared
     Unworthy of such a beautiful gift

How do I put into words the feelings in my heart?
The inexplicable, unmeasurable, instantaneous love.

She's real, this child of my heart!

I have another Daughter. God, give us strength for the journey to come.

God has orchestrated a miracle beyond my comprehension. He saw my deepest desire, saw my brokenness, heard my heart and gave me a gift that I hardly deserve.

God, make me worthy to be her mother, to bind her wounds, to help her meet your Son and receive your grace.

There's so much left to know: a name, a birthdate, her history. We haven't even seen a picture yet. All those things will come in time.

For all the struggle to get to this moment, there are many more ahead. We want her home, now. We want to hold her in our arms and comfort her fears and dry her tears. We want to be a complete family, to laugh and play together. But those things are yet to come.

God, hold her, every moment of every day. Keep her safe in your arms until she can be in ours.

Right now we savor this milestone.

We are are so very blessed.

The Lord has done this,
    and it is marvelous in our eyes.
The Lord has done it this very day;
    let us rejoice today and be glad.
Psalm 118:23&24
