Making Lunch

After a super busy day of "reorganizing" the playroom {check out the background}, S and K decided to bake me a pizza for lunch. Look at the two of them together! I can't help but smile every time I see such joy in their precious little faces. It's such a blessing that the transition for both of them has really been smooth overall. Yes, there are ups and downs in the first few months of any adoption, but what I've learned is that it is also how we as parents respond when those not-so-great days come...and they will come. But so do those same days with biological children. At the end of the day, as your children are lying peacefully, safely in their bed you will smile with overwhelming love. When you think about the transitions that they have made, you are blown away by God's great miracles and you will say I would do it 100 times over again.

Thank you Lord, for our two "babies". We have more fun together than I could have imagined. They are such a joy to be around (even when they pretend to be tornadoes and dump toys throughout the entire house). I appreciate all of the fun, silly, crazy moments that we get to spend together. We are incredibly grateful for each one of our children and are honored to be their parents. To have the privilege to show them your grace and love. Amen.
