This is the place where we are have documented the road we have walked in order to adopt our four children from Brazil and the road we are now on as a family. We are keenly aware that adopting is not just a process we've chosen to go through, but part of God's plan for us and for our children. May He be glorified through the process and through our family!

Before I left to go downtown for this dinner, I was really feeling down in the dumps... at the bottom of a doozy of a loop on the emotional rollercoaster on which I seem to be living these days. I called my dear husband and told him that I just wanted to stay home with the covers pulled over my head. But that dear husband of mine encouraged me to go, knowing that it would lift me up. And it did. I caught myself thinking, "If we'd already left for Brazil, I would have missed meeting these amazing women."
It's impossible to know what else we need to learn, understand, experience, hear or become before we finally meet our children (and oh, how we long to meet them!), but every time a gem like this one pops up, it reminds me that I really can't know what the future will hold... what blessings or what surprises. I just know that the big reveal will be well worth the wait, and I imagine it will erase most of it too.
