They’re here…. they’re here!

That’s right, all four profiles are here at the house. And, boy, do they look awesome. I will definitely be using Shutterfly again. They came three days early and they look perfect. The only thing Dru said when I texted him was: #favor. {And, yes, he did text me a hashtag, because it’s hilarious.}  I couldn’t agree with him more. The Lord has been showing Himself evident in every step of this process.

Once we hand these off to our social worker, she will be able to show them to birthmothers. This is the part of the process that calls for waiting. I should be really good at this by now, but I know God is going to continue to grow us and teach us as we move through this season of life. He has never failed to teach me through the other trails that we’ve been through, so why would He stop now?

I will begin counting the months once we turn in the profiles. I want to document the days/months of waiting on our baby.

This baby is growing so near to my heart. I am just too excited to meet him or her. After Christmas, we are going to really work on the nursery, which makes me giddy. Dreams are being fulfilled, people. That’s what God does, maybe it’s not how we pictured, but it’s most certainly the best.

My God is good.

Merry Christmas!

  3. such a great hashtag #favor 🙂 I think theres a reason all is moving so swiftly- that theres a mother just waiting for your profile! Excited for your nursery plans! 🙂

  4. Looks awesome! I would have liked to do actual books, but our agency asked for 20 copies. Just not cost effective so I went the homemade route. Very excited for you!

  5. Absolutely the best! Just reading this makes me so excited!! Can’t wait to see the little one! Lots of love!! 🙂
