Three Years Ago Today My Life Changed Forever and we brought our son home.
God’s faithfulness in the promise He made me when I was ten years old.
It came to pass.
15 months had passed. There was a lot of prayer and prophecy spoken over our family. The tears ran abundantly, more than I can even tell you. There was so much soul searching and lots of trusting
Our faith grew by leaps and bounds. We were reunited because MY God is sweet and what He brings us TOO He is faithful to bring us THROUGH.
When I met this little dude, three years ago, he turned me into a pile of mush. He called me mommy. On this day, our family grew by one.
One day, we will return to Ethiopia and I will have the chance to see my son see his mom. I will get the privilege to thank her for her love and sacrifice. There will be a time when she shares with me her stories about my son’s father. I will get to hear stories of when he was a baby and I will learn about his siblings.
This country will forever be a part of our lives and we are honored to have it as a part of our story. We are so thankful for the people that were a part of our story. The good, the bad, and the ugly parts. Above all, God gets all the glory for this amazing story.
One day, I’m going to write about our story. I’m not sure when that day will be, but it is coming. I’m fairly certain it will be like a healing salve to my soul.
