Hello friends. Just popping in to say thank you and send you my love and appreciation. I can't say too much other than yes, a little one has come to be part of our home. We are so very thankful and honored. It is a very bittersweet experience as it is temporary. We will have to say goodbye to her and I know it will be hard, but we are thankful for the time we'll get to have her with us.
We are off on a new adventure with this experience. We have already learned that our Father in Heaven needs us...he needs our hearts right now to love this little girl and provide safety, security, and love. We have learned that our little family is being built through adoption and foster care...ways we never planned on experiencing, but definitely ways that are providing us with the most cherished and sacred moments of our lives.
I wouldn't change a thing...no matter how difficult it will be to hand her back to her mother, when she is able to care for her baby, when she has fixed herself and knows how much her little one needs her and is able to provide for her all that she deserves. I pray for her every day as I get to be the one caring for her baby...I want that to be her.
Sigh...so there you have it. My heart is just about ready to burst. Sierra and I went shopping for her the other day. I let Sierra pick her out some new clothes. It was a first for us and was a really sweet moment.
I packed a diaper bag for the first time in 11 years. I've washed all of Sierra's tiny clothes and they are all ready and waiting.
Bottles and diapers will become a regular part of our life and I am looking forward to my Sierra blossoming as she helps care for this new little one.
We are blessed and thankful for this experience.
P.S. My card was made for Emma's Paperie using all sorts of fun Heidi Swapp products. You can see my supply list HERE. And, my burlap bag was made for Sizzix using some of their fun products. More details can be found HERE.
