A Special Day

Yesterday, we had a wonderful visit with the boys.
For those of you who don't know, we had
two little boys (brothers) in our family for a year.
We had desperately wanted to adopted the two boys,
but it didn't work out. We made the choice to have them
removed from our family, but that didn't remove
them from our heart.
They will always be a part of our family, and we are so thankful that
they remain a part of our lives even when they no longer live
with us.
Jon and I both believe that the Lord holds these boys
in His hands, and that if it is His will, they will come back
to us. For now, we trust and pray.
Yesterday was so fun for all of us.
The kids played together all morning.
They dressed up in Halloween costumes and ran around the
house. I loved hearing their laughter and
enjoyed a talk with their foster mom.
It amazes me to see how much they've grown.
My heart was so full of love for them, and for our
The time came for us to tell them good bye, but we made
promises to see them again soon.
Until then, we know that they are in God's loving
care. He has allowed us to remain a part of
their lives, and has even brought their birth
mother into our lives. He knows how
our family will grow and what children need us.
Meanwhile, we remember to enjoy the time given. What a wonderful
gift it was for us to spend our afternoon with
the four children we love most in this world.
