God is Good...All the time

So most of you know our court date was scheduled for Monday. For us, it has been a bit of a wait (especially for Ghanaian adoptions). Needless to say, we were anxious, excited and totally relying upon God for strength Monday. We waited all day with no word. Finally, about 9:30 pm we got an email: Court has been postponed. I read it and truly had peace. Truly. You can read about it here.

Tuesday was our new day. I don't think I slept more than a couple of hours that night. I kept waking and felt like I was being reminded to pray, to seek His face. I did. About 2:30 the sweetest words I have ever read came across my email: CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! ADOPTION HAPPENED!!!! Of course, I cried. My babies are now legally and officially my babies. One more big step closer to them. Thank you, sweet Jesus, for granting this and for you, my friends, for praying with us and encouraging us along the way. I am so thankful God has chosen me to be their momma, chosen me to walk this faith journey with Him. I realize His love for me now more than ever.

What now? We wait, again. We pray for our adoption order to be handed to P so we can travel to Ghana to file our I600. We are praying earnestly for this. We are praying God will move this next mountain between us and our beautiful children. We know He will. I am so ready to hold my little ones, to see their faces and to tell them how much I love them.
