We are believing around here for something big. I believe that each child that comes through our house, be it through birth, friendship, or the foster care system, has a plan from above for good and not for evil. Specifically I believe that the foster children that come through our home will have only positive outcomes and that the courts and CPS will work only to their best benefit.
As you might remember, our last set of kids went on to be placed with their forever family. The sequence of events that led these children to their forever family are too perfect for coincidence and too great for a mere human to have orchestrated. We like to believe that we were chosen to be part of their plan. These children are now lovingly matched with the parents that did not birth them from their womb but truly birthed them from their hearts. We were honored to have been privy to that miracle.
We feel that same powerful force moving in our current children's lives. I prayed when we first got them, for His grace to cover them, and for their forever family to come along. We had the children for approximately 11 days when they met their hopeful forever family. It was a meeting too coincidental to be coincidental and there was an overwhelming sense by the hopeful mother that these were her children. This couple will complete their licensing in record time and now have a developing relationship with our kids (logging many babysitting hours - willingly!). I hope that you, my dear friends and family, will join me in praying that these wonderful people will soon be our girls' forever parents. Oh, if you knew them, you would love them too! (For all you dog people - I know there are many of you, these folks are our friends that own the only dog kennel/doggy daycare that we would ever trust with our four legged family.)
