Mother of FOUR...

Today, I woke up, and flipped our yearly scripture calendar to April 5th. It read, "May you be given more and more of God's kindness, peace, and love." I thought, Wow, I don't deserve any of those things, and yet I'm still praying for all of those daily, but especially today. God is so righteous! He continually blesses us, yet we are so undeserving! Ah, The Author of Love, sure is a great teacher!
Then I headed to MOPS which was great as usual, besides my stomach being in knots, feeling anxious, on edge, and just ready for answers! It was kind of like being in labor since December and waiting for the last few minutes until new life. I couldn't stop looking at the clock, not to mention checking my phone for calls and waiting to see when Brett was going to drop off a hungry little "G". Well, time went by and still no word. I called my friend Laura hoping to hear something positive and of course she was, although I was definitely starting to worry...well at 12:35 PM today I received a phone call... As I got nervous and instantly felt like I was going to be sick to my stomach, I answered. It was the case worker. Of course, they can't just come right out and say "You were chosen", no, that would be to easy, and save me from trying not to puke (sry). Instead, they do the build up, gradual, drawn out words, and then, "We thought your family would be the perfect match for these kids" Ahhh, Hallelujah! Praise God! I am now the mother to four blessings! I would go on to tell you how beautiful they are, and how you should go to our FB page and see pictures, but no... we still haven't even seen their innocent beautiful faces! But I know they have blonde hair! Native American heritage with blonde hair? Their case worker was just as taken back as we were when she first met them, but God plans it just the way He wants it! He knows exactly how many little blonde hairs are on their beautiful little heads. We are SO excited! Each day we have something to look forward to. Tomorrow, we may get to see pictures, and maybe this weekend we can meet them?!!? This is just an amazing journey! I can't wait to share what the next few weeks holds for all of us. We can't wait to start our lives as a complete family, and show them how amazing God is!
Brett, "B"-6, "S"-3, "D"-2, "G"-8M and I!

  1. I am so over the moon excited to hear your news!! I cant wait to read all about the road that the Lord is taking ur family down! We have known each other since we were kids, and now u have four beautiful kids of ur own! I have always had a special place in my heart for adoption. There was a family at our church growing up that had foster kids, and I remember seeing them at church and thinking "how happy they looked". I now know and understand that there was a special spirit around each and every one of them. It is my prayer that the Lord continues to 'Bless your family and keep them, making his face to shine upon them, and give them peace'. Much love, Hattie Keyes
