I have not forgotten ya'll in bloggy land.
Our days are oh so very full!
We are counting down weeks to finish another school year.
Working on sibling bonding:)
And being intentional about getting our little man together with other boys.
Our days are
Our son has only been home for 2 1/2 months...
yet it feels like we have loved him for a lifetime.
I think the thing he struggles with the most is not having brothers.
He came from an orphanage with many boys that he absolutely loves...
and he misses them DEEPLY!!
We learned of an institutional sibling that has been with Aaron for most of his life. They were together in a previous orphanage, and then shared the same unit in the orphanage where we adopted him from. We contacted our agency immediately upon coming home, and the ICAB shortly after to ask for an exception to their two year rule between filipino adoptions. We wanted to return for Aaron's "brother".
We prayed much and waited for their response. We know God's will is best and would praise HIM if they say yes, and praise HIM if they said no.
Well, it just was not God's will for this sweet "brother", or our family.
The ICAB responded that another family was identified for this young man.
Understandably, we are disappointed that he will not be coming to our home...
but at the same time we are so very thankful for this family and KNOW that God's plans are best!!!
Where does that leave us?
You do not have to read the blog for very long to hear our heart!!
God has called us to adoption.
We know our family is not complete.
We are praying that God will lead and guide us as to where to look, and which child/children should be welcomed into our family in the future.
HE has a plan for us!
HE will call us!
HE will open doors!
As we seek HIS will!
Oh how this mama gets excited as we pray together for HIS plan for our family!!!
We are so very blessed to parent these fabulous children...
We look forward to watching the growth...as we worship HIM!!
