Forever Family Bliss

                                       

One of the best parts of my job here at El Roi is getting to place our precious babies into the arms of their Forever Families for the very first time. In June one of our little men went home to his Forever Family. It was a very special placement with adorable first time parents who were overjoyed to get to meet their baby boy for the first time. I love hearing how the Lord leads families to adopt… it is not an easy journey (typically) and yet they each embark on said journey waiting for the special day they get to meet their baby for the very first time.  It is a journey that is fraught with uncertainties, long periods of waiting and hundreds of unknowable factors… and that all happens BEFROE they meet their baby! I am so grateful that there are people called to adopt. Hand selected to be apart of God beautiful story of adoption and redemption in this broken and hurting world. I am thankful for the daily reminders that God has redeemed me and adopted me into His eternal family. I pray that my life will always reflect the remembrance of this truth.

Here are some pictures of sweet baby boy L's journey to meet his forever family:
