Today is March 19th! My sister’s birthday and Liam’s Gotcha Day. The day we had him in our arms for good, forever. Really interesting fact about our two children who entered our family through adoption: both of their Gotcha days are on my siblings’ birthdays. Lola’s Gotcha is June 18th, on my brothers birthday and the day before her sister Charlotte’s birthday. And Liam’s, like I said, is on my sister’s birthday. Thank you God for little reminders along the not-always-easy paths of life.
Oh Liam. Oh Liam. What a joy you are. You are a feisty and naughty almost 3 year old, but my goodness how you have knit yourself completely into my heart. My love for you was immediate and overwhelming. I dreamed of you becoming my son since I was a child. When you became my son God showed me how He fulfills the desires of one’s heart in devastatingly beautiful ways. Our stories collided 2 years ago and while it is steeped in heartache and pain God has redeemed what was lost. We have much to walk through as you grow older and your story becomes clear to you, but know that you are firmly grafted to my tree, you are my joy, my son. I love you in indescribable ways.
Congratulations Amber Minor! You have some Lemon oil coming your way! Please send me a message with your address. 🙂
