|Right after getting in the pool for the first time!!|
As I was pondering my precious boy being 3 months old yesterday (wow!), I started thinking about God's timing of our adoption.
We have been so blessed to only have waited 5 months for a placement, while many families wait years for a child. And we were blessed to be matched and placed with Luke before our move to FL, which turns out to be a big relief - saving us a bunch of additional paperwork and a good amount of money. But another timing thing occurred to me last night that had me praising my great God for His higher ways.
Check it out . . .
Luke was born on March 25, at 38 weeks into the pregnancy.
Somebody go ahead and do the math. You know you want to.
The first week of July 2012, God was knitting our little Luke together in his birthmother's womb.
So, why is that significant?
July 3, 2012 - we submitted our preliminary application to the adoption agency.
That's right. Let it sink in . . .
GOD WAS FORMING LUKE'S BODY AS WE WERE APPLYING TO BE HIS PARENTS!
As my husband would say: You're welcome.
