We have girls!

Well it's been a crazy week thus far but yesterday was by far one of the most exciting, exhausting days I've had in a LONG time! No sleep and my mind racing of possible twins.
My phone was glued to my side all day and finally at 3:00 we got a phone call that the hospital had released the babies and our social worker was on her way to get them...
I was standing in the middle of a hardware store and I started crying.
They said they would call when they were on the way home with them(and all papers were signed). Needless to say I was a wreck by this time!

5:30-my phone started ringing again and when I answered my social worker said,"Robin all the papers have been signed and I'm sitting here next to the birth-mom and she wants to talk to you."

Words please form! A voice so little and small on the other end. I assured her that her girls would be loved.
Our conversation flowed as we both talked about the future and her pride as she talked about her girls.."they are beautiful" she said....
As we hang up I can't help but to say a prayer for us both.


Breathe Robin...two babies coming closer to me to their forever family.
Emotions a tangle...
Tears flow..
Mind racing....

This is what I'm here for "times like this...."

Later today we will get the first glimpse of our little angels!!

Ah, you have transported me back 10 years ago when we received our two infant daughters (though 4 months apart). The process was an emotional roller coaster. Those were happy but exhausting days. They both are thankful that they were adopted into a family that has raised them to know Jesus. Your girls will grow up knowing the love of so many: Christ, your family, and their birthmother.
God bless!!
