We are so thankful we got to spend our sunday with them and their parents. On the way home I was thinking about this journey we have been on, all the people we have met and I was brought to tears. What would life be like if Josh and I would have said no to God's call to be Malachi's parents? We listened, although we knew it wouldn't be easy, and have been blessed with a new family. We talked today about family traditions we wanted to start with the kids, we talked about what we wanted their relationships with each other to look like and we talked about our new family. I can't wait to see them all again, to hug them and kiss their sweet little cheeks.
As we find our selfs celebrating Christmas with our loved ones please remember to say a prayer for Malachi's birth mom, she has made some HORRIBLE decisions in her life, but if it were not for her, we would not have Malachi or our new family. Pray that she is safe, warm and healthy. Pray that she knows God and understand that He has forgiven her and that one day we can all celebrate, together, as family in Heaven.
