"So promise me you'll never forget...that you aren't an accident or an incident...you are a gift to the world, a divine work of art, signed by God. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on this earth...Flooded by emotion, overcome by pride, the Starmaker turns to us, one by one, and says, 'You are my child. I love you dearly.'" Max Lucado, God Thinks You're Wonderful

My cup runneth over!

My sister said this the other day, "my cup runneth over" and it could not be more true.

I can't say enough how great our God is. My heart is so full it does feel like it's about to bust right out of my chest. Sadie is more than I could have ever thought to imagine. And then I watch her brothers with her, and it's enough to make this momma down right mush.

They ADORE her. They love to show her off everywhere we go (just like their mom and dad). They love to take care of her and kiss on her and want to know where she is every minute of the day. They love her noises and worry when she cries. Owen told me on the way to church on Monday to put Sadie in the front with me since she was crying. I thought it was so cute.

So here are some things to pray about if you have a minute.

They have set the court date for when mommy G will relinquish her rights for Sadie.

You guys, this is a big day for us because then we really have smooth sailing until finalization.....BUT, this day brings us sadness too.

I can't imagine being mommy G this day. I can't imagine doing what she has to do in the court room all alone. Please pray the judge is gracious and merciful and speaks only kind words to her.

Please pray for her precious heart, that God holds her tight this day and reminds her of His great plan for her life. As much as we want this day to come, we also find ourselves grieving for mommy G and Sadie. She will be in court Tuesday, September 16th @ 11 am. Please cover her in prayer. Oh the emotions of adoption!

So, here are some pictures from yesterday. They turned out great. I am sure most of you blog stalkers will be getting your own version in the mail soon (remember I am sleep deprived, so give me a week or two!).

Thanks for loving our family. More importantly thanks for lifting Mommy G up in prayer when you think about it. We hope to see her Wednesday of next week!
