Adoption Day is officially September 18, 2012!
I’m taking a few days off of blogging to be with my precious children as we rejoice together about the mercies of God through Adoption. This adoption is a testimony of the Lord’s gracious hand. He providentially lead us to begin the adoption process before we began trying to have biological children. This was weird for us, and I’m sure all our family and friends to adopt first but it’s what we really sensed was the right thing for us to do.
 Now, we understand. These precious children needed a home almost immediately after we were an approved home! The Lord has saved these children from such a scary situation in their precious home. It has been over a 2 year journey for us with them, battling in court and they were removed from their birth home a year prior to coming into our lives.
 These children have experienced so much hardship, trials, abuse, so many homes, but they finally have a forever family. This home will not be perfect, their mom and dad are sinners but by grace we will love, cherish, protect and invest our lives in them. We have prayed, so many have prayed, during this whole process for these children. The day of our adoption was a fairytale. It was surreal and it still takes my breathe away and tears flow when I realize that it’s finally finished. They are finally Fowlers!
