It was about 15 minutes after our little girl was born that we were able to be with her in the nursery. From the very first look at her, we fell completely in love. Just as any parent, we immediately loved her and had this instant need to make sure she was safe and secure. Then we were able to hold her, watch her sleep, open her eyes, watch her facial expressions and see her smile. The love and bond with her just continued to grow to a love that we couldn’t have imagined. I truly believe that the bonding happened the same exact way it would have with a biological child.
?He holds every minute and His grace and timing are perfect. So we?re just going to go all out and trust and be brave: it takes courage to listen with our whole heart to the tick of God’s timing, rather than march to the loud beat of our fears.
The Lord truly gave us the desires of our hearts. The journey wasn’t easy. It was filled with loss, heartache and many tears. However, now that we have our daughter, we couldn’t imagine it any other way. God truly had our daughter picked out for us all along.
