Meetcha Day Memories



Two years ago today....  Meetcha Day!

I held my precious little ones in my arms for the very first time.  God is sooooo good!

I held their hands, hugged, squeezed, and loved. 

I cried with joy.  Rachel cried silent tears in fear, and then Jeremiah cried right before we left because he took a spill and scratched his belly. 

We took a walk, played ball, blew bubbles, colored, bounced balloons, and ate LOTS of fruit snacks and crackers.  Sweet Rachel and I even shared a song... matching pitch on "La" spells bonding in my book.

These memories are etched in my mind forever.  There is beauty even in brokenness.  God is the Giver of Life.  He is more than able to restore, rebuild, and REDEEM.  I am humbled, grateful, and continually amazed by the adoption story He has written for our family and continues to write each day.
