I immediately called Derrick and my parents when I got in my car so they could be praying for him to be o.k. as he processed that information in class. His heart is so tender.
Well, just as I expected, as soon as I picked the kids up from school Eli got in the car and said, "Isaiah, you're adopted!" (I had told Eli at lunch that Isaiah was adopted too.)
Isaiah says, "O.k., I have no idea what you mean." For the next 30 minutes or so we had the best talk about it all. I don't know if God had just shut their ears to it all when Derrick and I told them all of this before, or if they just weren't really old enough to comprehend and understand, but now they know for sure what precious gifts they are to us.
Our prayers were answered. They were both in the best moods after our talk. Thank You Lord for pulling me through that one!
If you are a "birthmother" out there, thank you for the sacrifice that you made so that your child could be loved, provided for and cherished for all of their days. If you are considering adoption, it's the most wonderful thing you could do! I can't imagine my life without my boys!
Today there were no "chocolate lizards" in our discussion, but I sure could eat one right now! :)
