I just have to declare my thanks and praise to God for His provision and blessing. Today we got the news that our grant application was accepted and our adoption fees are paid in full. This means that we can now be shown to potential birthmothers...one step closer to bringing home Tait.
It's been an emotional day and my heart is overflowing with love and gratitude. Thank you Father for taking such good care of us. We truly believe that we are in Your perfect will and that you have a little one out there who you want back...we are ready.
Let my heart not forget this day -ever - and always remember that His plan is best. We might be in for a long wait, we might not...regardless I will praise Him!!
As I did dishes tonight (listening to Pandora - Newsboys station) I was praying and thanking God. Humming along to a Newsboys song I glanced at the computer and saw the album cover...I thought, since when is there a black guy in that band? Upon further inspection, I realized it was Michael Tait from DC Talk!!! I was instantly transported back to a dark time in our lives - when we were waiting for Sophie.
We attended a prayer group at church and the room we met in was the teen's rec room. One of the posters on the wall for the band Tait and had a large picture of Michael and the name TAIT in big bold letters. I spent a lot of time staring at that poster, the name, and the man.
In this instance God was speaking to me to let me know that our Tait is on his way...I will hold onto this hope and memory! It's amazing how God weaves everything together!
