I can hardly believe how quickly time flies! One year ago today, I was sweating profusely, showering with a bucket and using more bug spray than any person should probably ever use (that may account for the slight twitch in my neck).
|The exact spot where we had met "Prince" (Asher) 2 years earlier|
|Brothers from Day 1|
|The very moment the plane landed on US soil|
|The first time we ALL met|
And this weekend we celebrate!
We celebrate that for exactly one year we have journeyed together and made memories we used to long to make.
We celebrate that for one year we have learned to read together, write together, play soccer together and put-hotsauce-on-everything-we-eat together! (Yes, I believe I just made that a verb of some sort)
We celebrate a little boy who has shot up 3 inches and grown out of two pairs of sneakers (well, maybe we don't celebrate that as much)!
And We celebrate that we no longer have to look to the sky and wonder if our little boy is safe...
But, above all else, we celebrate that we serve a God who is still in the business of miracles.
A God who led us on a missions trip that changed our world and broke our hearts.
A God who kept our little guy safe during terrifying raids and famines that I can't even begin to comprehend...
A God who broke down political barriers that were keeping us from being with our son...
And A God who knew at the beginning of time that our family would not be complete without the four precious gifts He has given us.
