Never feeling their life grow in my womb
The baby cuddles and smells
Late night feedings
First smile, first laugh, first step, first word
Kissing boo boos and bandaging knees
First days of school
Comforting broken hearts
Birthday after birthday, without us
Different things missed for each child
The sense of loss still lingers
Over God's perfect timing
Over each moment and memory we do have
Over each new discovery and bonding moment
Over the fact that He choose us to raise them
This is the story of adoption
Why do they have to grow up so fast?
It seems like just yesterday we were in that sultry hotel conference room meeting our 18 month old baby girl.
And almost a year ago we sat huddled in a cold conference room waiting to meet our 8 year old boy.
And over the past months, it seems that my babies are growing up
WAY TOO FAST
Ready to take on the world
No longer the baby faced boy we first saw
Growing more mature every day
So we will cherish every moment we have with them
Holding on those memories of laughter, joy, sadness, and love
Thanking our God in heaven for His most precious gifts.
