Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow

It has finally happened. I have my Taiwan court decree!!!! I am a mom! I have been on my journey to motherhood for almost 3 years now. I am speechless and still in shock. I feel like I am living in a dream or watching this all happen to someone else. My heart is BUSRTING with joy!

Today is my birthday and God gave me the most precious gift.......

I promise to treasure this child always.
I promise to love this child always.
I promise to be the very best mom I can be.
I promise to devote all to my child.
I promise to help my child have a relationship with our Lord.
I promise to honor my child's heritage and culture.
I promise to always remember her birthmom and keep her in my daily prayers.
I promise to give my all to her happiness, health, and well-being.
I promise to always remember what an amazing gift I have been given.

Thank you Lord. I stand in amazement everyday!

I am ready to get on that plane! Please join me in prayer for a quick AIT appointment. I am ready to hold my daughter.
