Chosen....

Chosen.. the word we waited so long to hear in our adoption story! One year ago today we got the call from the adoption agency that D. had chosen us to be Liliana's parents! I have to say that I'm not usually a sentimental person (really..it's just not my thing) but today-all day- I continuous thought about and praised God for Liliana and her presence in our lives. I don't know what I would do without my baby girl. She is the light of my life and I can't wait to see her each morning, catch that smile at the babysitter when I pick her up, and play with her each evening. She is growing up so fast. And I had to think about where Kevin and I were one year ago today- we sat at the kitchen table with the speaker phone on and listened to details about D. and her baby. I have to say that I tuned out after they told me she was due in one week..ONE WEEK! I didn't catch many details after that! Being a SLIGHT bit stubborn and always getting her way, however, Liliana waited 2 weeks and let mommy sink in to the fact she was going to be a mommy! :) I know that I posted about this at the time, but it begs to be reminded- No matter how much control you think you have in your life and how much you want for something- nothing is going to happen until God's ready for it- and guess what folks- His timing is INCREDIBLE! If you would have told us 1 year ago, that I'd be mommy to a beautiful little girl AND have a handsome (i'm making some assumptions due to his daddy's looks :) young man on the way- I would have never believed it-but as we know- with God all things are possible! (okay...I'm off to sing that praise song that's now stuck in my head..) Have a blessed evening..

Hey Gincy. It was a totally different situation with us when we found out we were getting Savannah. I had been in the hospital for 6 weeks, was diagnosed with a rare, incurable blood disorder, and quite honestly, was feeling really depressed when Todd's niece came over and told us she was giving us the baby. I'll never forget that day. God does work everything out for us, just not always necessarily the way we think it will work out...but I couldn't be more blessed being her mother and couldn't be more grateful to God for my precious baby girl. Are you guys going to celebrate her "gotcha day"? The day your adoption was final? We definatly will. I'm so happy for you and Kevin to be given this blessing and the new little one you have on the way as well!
