There really aren't enough words in the world or hours in the day to record what this day has felt like from beginning to end.  We are exhausted, but in the best kind of way.  Today we got to meet our babies, and we have a great deal of reason to believe they are truly to be ours.  Amazing.  Paperwork is signed.

God moved mountains today on behalf of these children to place them in our family.  We truly stand amazed and in awe of the work we have watched unfold today, and we are so thankful and blessed.  And maybe a bit delirious with joy.  We have shed many tears of joy today.


The girls are excited, though they don't really understand what is happening.  We will take them to meet the babies tomorrow.  Lily is very excited that we got a sister in with this deal!  They had an awesome night hanging out with friends when we got the word that we could go to the hospital and meet them.


Our babies will be in the hospital for a while longer.  I will wait until the adoption is finalized before posting any pictures of them, but they are precious.  We will have a whole new life learning about getting them to where they can come home, hopefully in a couple of weeks.  Holding them and loving on them tonight was a sweet gift from God.  They are such tiny little loves!

This sweet woman of God is the babies grandmother who has fought for them and prayed for them and loved them fiercely.  We are so thankful to welcome her into our lives.


And now, we are headed to bed.  We need to get our sleep now, while we can.  It will only be a matter of time before it is even harder to come by than normal.

This road is not finished.  There are things that could happen to make this go awry, but with every passing detail and day, those things are lessened.

Thank you for your prayers from the very bottom of our hearts.  God is bigger than any mountains we may be looking to climb.  We are humbled and amazed and praising him.

You will love being parents of twins. You will also have to desl with a lot of questions from strangers but most are very friendly. You will find them to be great blessings in your lives.

This post brings tears of joy to my eyes and an overwhelming sense of happiness to my heart. I've been reading, praying, and hoping that you would be able to welcome these babies into your family, and I'm so happy that God made his plans known to you. What a blessing! Congratulations!
