He is OURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

October 23, 2008 at 9:53 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 16 Comments

I have been looking forward to writing this blog for a while now. I just talked to our social worker and August is finally OURS!!! I cannot stop crying. I am so relieved and feel like I can breathe now. He is really ours.

I am so grateful to A today. She is such a hero. She chose life for him. She gave the sweetest gift to us. I will always honor her with my words and my heart. I love her so dearly.

I really thought I would have more words for this post but I don’t. I just feel like I don’t have to worry anymore even though the Lord has been so sweet to take away those fears. My heart is so full. I just wish I could lay next to my husband with our baby between us and cry with him and thank our sweet God for this blessing. I miss him more in this moment than I ever have. August has been worth every single second of the wait. I am so in love with him. Thank you all for your love, support, prayers and financial giving throughout this process. You have lightened the load on our backs and been such a blessing to us. We love you and LOVE OUR SON!!!!!!!!

Tears of Joy!!!!!!!!!!
