I know many are wanting details and while our Macy's story will be her story to share, there are details I feel can be shared.
Macy is 2 1/2 and will turn 3 on April 5. I'm already dreading the idea of her celebrating a birthday in another country without us. BUT, this is only the beginning of our wait and I need to remember she's right where she's always been way before we even knew she existed... in God's hands. In His protection. And that is where she will be until we can bridge the miles between.
The kids are extremely excited and proud to be siblings again! Liam is especially in wonder over becoming a BIG brother! Prior to Christmas (because I knew we were close to receiving a match) I had ordered these amazing shirts from a seller on Etsy. I gave them to the kids on Thursday night when I took them to dinner and told them about our referral. They wore them to school Friday to share the big news!
They also took chocolate cigars to all of their teachers! (Of course first I had to ATTEMPT to explain the significance of a chocolate cigar... maybe I should've gone with candy bars?!) :) We are keeping the box to hold any cards and mementos for Macy.
I also printed out the two pictures we have so the kids could bring them to school!
I have lots more roaming around my noggin regarding orphans and adoption and on and on... hopefully soon they will form some semblance of sense in my own head so I can attempt to share them!
All in all, we are THRILLED with the prospect God has given us to be a family to our Macy. It's extremely humbling. And we covet your prayers as we wait out the rest of this process!
