PrincessD is a beautiful, healthy baby. She came to us 20 inches long, 7 pounds, and ready to be held. We don't know what the future holds right now. It is at the very beginning of the case and several factors may play into it (like an available family member that would make a better placement).
Mr.A is in love. Thing1 is an awesome helper. Thing2 loves to entertain her. PrincessA is warming up quickly. I am trying to take it all in. So, in answer to the question- are you crazy? Yes, we are crazy in love with our ever growing family!
Thank you to our amazing family (both blood and otherwise)! I am so grateful that God has placed people in my life that see a need and persist until I admit I need help. It is a huge lesson in humility and practicing what I preach in letting others receive a blessing by helping our family.
Ways you can pray:
- Pray for our adjustment. Mr.A and I are of course dealing with limited and interrupted sleep, added paperwork, appointments, and visits. We are also learning how to spread ourselves out to 4 children. Thing1 is amazing as a big brother, but acting out in other ways. Pray that he learn/we are able to teach him better ways to communicate his feelings. Thing2 is actually adjusting beautifully so far- pray that it continues. PrincessA is between the boys in how she is adjusting, but nothing out of what I expected. Pray that she continues to blossom.
- Pray for the finalization of PrincessA's adoption. That the right people would get the file and move with it.
- The 16th is the first hearing for PrincessD's case. Please lift up the judge, attorneys, and CPS workers that they may have wisdom and great discernment as they are faced with life altering decisions for this precious baby.
- Pray for PrincessD's birthmother. Pray that she would come to know Jesus in a personal way. Pray that she would begin to make decisions that are healthy for her children- even if they are not easy for her to make.
