It’s been a long, painful road. You know…the kind you can’t possibly walk through without God’s holding you up?
Matt’s brother Randy and his wife Kari have been on quite a journey for the past several years. They’ve dealt with pregnancy and loss…excitement and disappointment…triumph and tragedy.
Too many times.
It’s been painful, for all of us…Randy and Kari most of all. They’ve clung to God through it all. Because all the time…God is good.
Two years ago, God gave them a new opportunity. The opportunity to adopt.
With this new possibility came a new kind of joy…and a new kind of fear. This adoption process was not a simple one. (are any of them simple?)
There were times it sounded like the whole thing would all fall through. And then it would all seem okay again. And then it wouldn’t.
I think we’ve all been holding our breath for two years.
Until last Friday. Friday, we could let out our breath and jump for joy!
The sweet baby boy God gave to Randy and Kari back in October of 2007 is officially and totally theirs!
This is the best Gratituesday ever.
