Good Lord Be Praised! We Have Children!!

The picture shows three of our four children.  You have my permission to cry, faint, and call your preacher.  We got our four!  These lovely children… and let me tell you that these are the children we’ve been praying, aching, and waiting for… will be officially ours very soon.  That’s right, folks.  We will be parents.  Suddenly, the “family” section of this blog will be booming!

We picked them up yesterday and it has been a whirlwind of organizing, adjusting, laughing, and learning.

I’d write more but I’m exhausted.  No one ever mentioned the delightful state of exhaustion that comes with parenting!!

Thank you — all of you — for your love and support.

I can’t post pictures that show their sweet faces until everything is official but I just HAD to show them off.  Okay?  Can you blame me?  Take another look:

  • Leah - OMGosh Lacy they are precious! I am SO happy for you and Josh – and of course, for your kids! *happy dance* I’m tearing up over this, I’m so happy for you! *great big hugs!!!!!*ReplyCancel

  • Linda Sue - Could not be a nicer way to check blogs than to find THIS update – hooray and hallelugah and way to go LORD! excited to learn more about the suddenly expanded family.ReplyCancel

  • Laura - I knew you wouldn’t be able to wait too long!! They are the sweetest bunch I’ve had the pleasure to meet in a long time. And to just think, a little over a week ago we were in your kitchen wondering why it was taking so long. The Lord answers our prayers on His time.ReplyCancel

  • Kelly - So, I now have 4 nieces and a nephew? Or 3 nieces and 2 nephews? (The additional niece comes from the Taylor side).

  • Mrs darling - Im so happy for you. You are in for the biggest blessings and the biggest sorrows that a woman can have; children. I dont say that to sound pessimistic at all. It only means that in my opinion life is only really lived and the highs are only really reached and the lows are only really low, when one has kids. Thats what makes them so special and so wonderful. Thats why raising children is such a high calling. May God bless you on your journey and many happy congratulations to you!ReplyCancel
