My Isaac Part 20 Precious Moments

 Not all of the details of this saga were included on my blog, but an email from that time filled in the gaps.

"Jan 16, 2010
We got good news this week. CFS had their meeting on Thursday, and they're going back to court for the permanent order. We still have to wait for a court date, so it's far from over yet, but at least we know they're headed in the right direction."

I was feeling hopeful.

My Isaac, Our Foster Adoption Story

From my blog:

January 19, 2010 Precious Moments

My Isaac

  Under that curly hair is the cutest little girl you've never seen. Unfortunately, it has to stay that way, as I'm not allowed to post the faces of foster children. Not that we think of her as a foster child, but that's what her legal status says she least for now.

  Princess D has a cold and is not very happy these days. Our other little guy has a cold too, so I stayed home from church with them on Sunday evening. After I had tucked in 'S' it was time for D to go to bed. I'm not much for bedtime stories...that's Papa's department; I prefer to sing at bedtime. This time though, D had other ideas. She said, "Before we sing, can we just talk?" I said sure, so she proceeded to chatter away, telling me all kinds of stories. One was about a fishing trip she took with her friends...she has quite the vivid imagination, and an amazing vocabulary for a three year old!

  I was getting sleepy so I suggested we pray and sing our songs. Right now, her favourites are "Hohohohosanna" and "Heaven Is a Wonderful Place." Since Grandpa went to heaven last month, we have talked a lot about it, and how wonderful it is, and what Grandpa might be doing....that's how we started singing this song. So, we prayed and sang, and then she talked some more...and she talked, and talked....and talked some more. I don't know which one of us fell asleep first, but when I woke up an hour later, the little Princess was sound asleep.

  I got thinking about how blessed I am to have this beautiful little girl, and I'm thankful for these precious moments with her. I know how quickly they pass. One day you're singing to a three year old, and next thing you know, she's all grown up and singing to her own three year old.

  I just want to encourage all the moms out there to take the time to enjoy every moment you have with your children, whatever the age or stage....and I know, some of those stages are hard to enjoy! But, when they're all grown up and gone, you don't want to look back with regrets.

 Now go and give your kids a hug and ask them to tell you a story!

Psalm127:3 Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
