All I Can Do Is Praise HIM...The Adoptions Are FINAL!

"But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded" 2 Chronicles 15:7.

What greater reward can a mother ask for than to hold her babies in her arms and know they are hers and a gift straight from God?

It has been a battle at times, especially Judah's case, but Judah Kerry and Jaxon Kooper are officially ours! I can hardly believe God chose me to be their mother. What an honor. What a privilege. To know that no one can take them away now and that Judah will not have to go through any more of the pain he was exposed to the first few years of his life is such a burden lifted. Thank you so much for all of your prayers. God heard and answered!

I need to post their full stories here at some point. Maybe in the next few days as God continues to solidify the fullness of the truth of their adoption in me, I will be able to take the time to sit down and explain the depth of the blessing we have received.

The truth is I barely had time to write this brief little entry. As I write Judah is taking Josie's toy away and Jaxon is wanting a bottle and Jacy is sick with a sore throat and upset because she is having to miss voice lesson. So finding the time to blog or email or develop any other adult related contact has been a major challenge for the last 18 months. BUT, it is good. It is good because it is my calling. God has called me to be "mommy"! What greater calling is there? I can assure you, I treasure being called to be a "mommy" even more than I treasure being called a "missionary". Apart from being called "my bride" as my sweetheart calls me, there is nothing I want to be called more than "mommy".
