We had another great weekend with the boys, and we enrolled them in Sunday School. Although they will be changing classes on August 21, they have at least met some of the other kids with whom they will be growing up. After the 11:00 service, Sean saw one of the kids from his 3rd grade class and said "That kid is my best friend!" He was so excited about all the newness.
Isn't it great how young children so easily adapt?
If all goes according to plan, this Thursday, July 28, we will sign the paperwork to have them live with us permanently. A lot of people call this Moving-In Day. We have to wait another 90 days before we can petition to finalize the adoption but this is a major step in the right direction.
We are so excited. About having Zach & Sean with us full time. About having a bigger family. About what the future holds. In a way it's like the wedding vows: "for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish." We know we'll have plenty of all of this, but there's nothing else we'd rather do. We know this is what we are meant to do. And we know that God is with us. We know that He has brought us to this place.
Please continue to pray for us, all four of us. Our adoption journey is not ending. It is only beginning.
