Today is the 2nd most exciting day in the history of our family (second only to the day Ethan and I were married). Today is Forever Moore Day! Today is the day we are finally finally the forever parents to our precious Samuel Kenden Moore! Today is the day his adoption is final!
It has been a process a long time in the making (or so it seems). In reality, although we waited for several years to find out how God was going to grow our family, once our hearts were led toward adoption, and specifically toward Samuel, it was a very quick process. But, only because God did it. There is truly no other adequate explanation for how our son became OUR son. We give God all the glory, now and forever, for Samuel’s life and the gift of being chosen as his parents.
There are many blogs and many authors that have written, much more eloquently than I am able, about adoption. The most beautiful thing we learned in the process, though, is that waiting on God is worth it. Every. Single. Time. What looks like setbacks, what looks like roadblocks, are truly God’s sovereign hand in the affairs of our life. Every time we have waited patiently on Him, rather than forging our own way, there has been such rich blessing and joy that results. Wait on him, friends. Be strong, and take heart, and wait on the Lord (Psalm 27:14)
