Yesterday was a big day in my family. My sister was married!!! It has gone so fast and to see her continue to grow and become an amazing steadfast strong woman is wonderful. Her and her new husband are now embarking on their new journey as a married couple. I am excited to watch them as they grow in love together and show their commitment to each other through the way they live.
In celebration of this new time in their lives I decided to do my blog on some of the kids who now have families coming for them. On Reece’s Rainbow there is a page for all the kids who have families who are going through the process to adopt them ( http://reecesrainbow.org/category/rescued#top ). These children will soon be embarking on their new journey. A life with a family! Just like my sister and her husband are beginning a new journey as a family, these children will also get to explore the new dynamics that come with being loved and learning to love.
Thank you for kids like Hank Alan, Eliza, Lylah, Mayson, Wrayna, and Oliver . Thank you that they are about to experience the new life of a family. Thank you for the families that have come forward. I pray that as they continue to wait for their families to complete the process to bring them home that the children will have hope.
Please help the families to give themselves grace as they adjust to their new normal and learn who their children are – what they like and don’t like, what makes them laugh, what makes them cry, what their favorite food is, and what they wouldn’t touch in a million years.
Please help the children learn to love and trust. Please help them to feel safe. Thank you for the support around the families, please give the friends and family the wisdom to know how to help and when to give the new families space.
Thank you for all that You have done. May You be glorified through these adoptions and through the new futures that have opened up to these families.
In Your name I pray,
