My hands are trembling and I have tears in my eyes (no one is surprised by this I know) as I have anticipated typing these words for months. I am so excited to finally share a big secret we have been keeping. We sent out our Christmas card and let our friends and family know some exciting news...
WE ARE ADOPTING!
That's right, my heart is bursting with anticipation, joy and overflowing gratitude! My momma heart is miraculously growing in love for a little one we don't know yet but are so anxious to meet. We find such comfort that as we pray for our sweet new addition, God knows exactly who they are and hears our prayers.
I am sure you have lots of questions and in the coming months I will be sharing more. God's handprint has been all over this from the very beginning, which started several years ago. We have all the emotions but overwhelming peace and excitement as God continues to show us this is the path He wants us to take! We are currently in the home study process, if you are familiar with adoption. We are knee deep in paperwork at the moment!
This might just be my favorite post of 2017 so I will leave you with that and and say goodbye for the year. I am looking forward to enjoying time with my family and extended family this holiday season. I am beyond thankful for this tribe, affectionately known as KOKO's, and the relationships that have formed. I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I will see you all in 2018!
Until next time, keep on keeping on with a joyful, faith-filled life. #tribekoko
