Reveal #1 and A Winner!

Trust us.

We were as surprised as you guys.

The Hero and I had always assumed that our next adoption

would look just like our first.

A set.



Imagine our surprise when there was only

set of eyes staring at us from that waiting child list.

One story.

One heartache.

One child waiting for a family.

And one family...




of more kids.

It's why we hesitated.

Backed up even.

Questioned God's whisper.

Are you sure?
There's only one.

Were you not calling us to more?

I love that about loving Jesus.

only to softly laugh when His plans change.

And then steer our hearts in alignment with His plan

While we were planning on two more,

since the beginning of time He knew for now

there was just:

So with our first reveal done,

we are excited to share with you a small

piece of the puzzle.

And looking forward to sharing with you some more in the weeks to come.

of the LoPa "Worth the Wait" tee.

Alison, go to this post, pick out size and color

and email me and I'll get in the mail.

The rest of you, head over to this post and

order up your own "Worth the Wait" tees.

Come back real soon, and we'll start another contest for another piece of the puzzle.
