Last Tuesday, on Valentines Day, we received the news that "our" little one will indeed be placed with an Italian family. There were tears and sadness and we had to work really hard to pry open our fingers and let go of this little one that we were supposed to be holding onto loosely. It was beyond difficult, especially for this momma. I placed her picture in my Bible in Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future".
God's promise for this sweet little girl.
I'm so thankful that she will no longer be an orphan - that God did place her in a family. We'll continue to pray that she will come to know and love her Heavenly Father and spend her life discovering the plans that He has for her.
And we'll continue to follow God's plan for our family and wait for the little one He has chosen for us.
