My Best Christmas Present Ever!~

Jeremiah 29:11-13

New King James Version (NKJV)
11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.

In the last couple of months, I sought God with all my heart. Begging His favor and protection on Silas and Brooklynn. Since being told that the kids would possibly be going home or extending another 6 months for a decision to be made...I haven't been able to sleep. My stress level has been higher than ever before. I just wanted to hug my babies and KNOW they were safe...know I wouldn't lose them.  

Mark 11:24

New King James Version (NKJV)
24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them,and you will have them.

We have them! 

We have them!!

We have them!!!!

After 21 months MY God has shown through in the heart of the kids father!! He called me today, wanting to be the first to tell me...He has relinquished his rights.  What do I say, but PRAISE GOD!! Only God could soften dad's heart and bring him to this decision. I love my God and He loves me!!


Thank You for Your prayers and your continued prayers in the months to come:)
