Our church is every bit our family in Utah. They stood with us, prayed with us, and cried with us during this long road to adoption. They were strong for us and believed in hope even when I couldn't. And now they stand with us with joy and open arms as we welcome Sasha home and pledge to support and encourage us as we raise our children in Truth.
I think back on all of those "waiting in hope" verses I memorized during the long months of paper-pregnancy. They grew and are growing fruit in my heart and I am grateful for the person I'm becoming because of our adoption adventure.
Welcome home, Alexandra Grace.
Relax, everything's going to be all right;
rest, everything's coming together;
open your hearts, love is on the way!Jude 2
