I’ve had hundreds of updates and anecdotes rolling through my brain lately, with no time or energy to get them posted. However, we do have a BIG prayer request to share tonight.
After a long cycle of, “I’m not telling them…you tell them,”—going from CPS to our agency to the therapist and back—all of the people involved in our adoption case have made a decision about who will tell our kids that we are adopting them: PJ and I.
What? Yeah. Crazy. On one hand, I’m grateful to be able to share in this moment with our kids instead of them finding out in a therapy session while I am in the waiting room. On the other hand…yikes. This is huge. I feel not at all qualified to deliver this life changing news, especially because the adoption issue is wrapped up in the fact that their birth mom relinquished her parental rights, which the kids don’t yet know…
We are planning on telling the kids tomorrow (Saturday) evening. Please join with us in prayer that the Lord would prepare and protect their sweet hearts. Please pray for wisdom and grace in our words.
Hopefully I’ll be able to post more frequently in the coming days. Don’t give up on me yet! I have great stories involving biting, playing in the potty, and losing teeth. And losing my mind.
