Our Last Day

We're having major computer problems, and so I'll probably be missing again for some time. yuck. It's been a hard few days, as we said goodbye to Little Boy Blue on Wednesday night. Our last day together was a very good one. We enjoyed swimming together.
Even his fits were savored.

And this laugh and picture will forever be priceless.

Once again, there have been many tears, screams, profanities and fits. But we are drawn very close to Him and reminded that this ministry is not about how we feel or the emotions that come our way when a child leaves our home. It's all about glorifying our Father, and teaching little ones about how He loves, how He lives, and how He rejoices over each one. It is amazing how days of grieving are also wonderful, joyful days of drawing close to our children, lots of games, heart to hearts, holding, crying AND laughing together.

Meanwhile, we've added a new member to the family. Meet Sadie.

I'll continue to send up prayers for this precious little boy. Isn't it amazing how one can be so touched via a computer screen. I have a massive lump in my throat! Big hugs to you...
