Isaac and momma are bonding well. So well…that he decided to share whatever funk he had when I got him from the orphanage. Imodium is my new best friend. Seriously–things are going really well. He is giving me lots of direct eye contact, patting my face with his tender hands when I give him bottles and lots of smiles. Isaac and I are in a separate room at the hotel from my sister and mom–which helps with bonding for the two of us…and they are just across the hall…so thankful they are here. I learned more of Isaac’s history–and I’m in amazement what a miracle he really is. I feel so honored that God chose Richard and I to be his parents. I want to say we are lucky–but there is no luck here. Just God’s mercy and grace that He would be so kind to us to let us be parents again in this way. Our hearts are overflowing.
Please pray for me tomorrow as Isaac and I sit down with his birthmom (Lord willing if she is able to show up). Pray that with the language barrier the Holy Spirit would translate our hearts. I got a list of answers from questions the orphanage asked her when she came by to see him when she went to court–and she is a woman of the Lord with high hopes of His calling by God in this life. Wow. Indeed the Lord has reminded me today what our purpose is as moms. Really–our ONLY purpose. To bring glory to our Creator…our Father.
