It's been a year

A year since you came home for the first time, when you wept tears missing your last placement, and terrified of what was to come.

You had no idea Ryan and Kaci would become your mommy and daddy. 

You would become mine. I would become yours. We would be a family.

We had no idea what we were doing. We became parents of two with a week warning. But it was right. It was good. It was beautiful, but oh so scary. 

You are unbelievably strong. How frightening to be thrown into a family. A new school. New rules. New life. Stripped of everything that was normal for you.

the BIG feelings 

without the words to be able to share. 

Mad. Sad. Scared. Happy. Those words will never do justice for where you have been nor should they ever. 

God is writing a story. It is good. It will be good. Perfectly good.

There are hard days. On your knees praying hard days. There are beautiful days. Hands in the air praising God beautiful days. 

We have seen healing. Transformation. Redemption. Beautiful redemption.

A stranger the other day with the most sincere joy said to me 'you are so blessed.'

I am.

You have blessed me. Daily. Moment by moment. Undeservingly.

We love you. Miss Magoo and Mr Man. You have stolen our hearts.

Kaci! This is so beautiful. I am so happy for you and your little family. Someday your little ones will read this and see so clearly how much you love them.
