"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

Have you heard this song by Phil Whikham?

To the one who's dreams are falling all apart
And all you're left with is a tired and broken heart
You will be safe in His arms
'Cause the hands that hold the world are holding your heart
This is the promise He made
He will be with You always
When everything is falling apart
You will be safe in His arms

We have felt so wrapped up in God's goodness today. I won't lie...it's been an excruciatingly painful day. But in the midst of that we have undoubtedly felt the presence of God. He guarded our children's hearts and they handled the transition like a piece of cake.

I was able to keep it together for the most part, and only lost it when leaving the house with my mom and heading for the agency with sweet KK. The meeting at the agency could not have gone better. This pumpkin has so much love around her its unreal. She has 4 parents that love her more than life itself, and two that will be able to parent her through life. I was able to express in my sobs that we only wanted to adopt her if it was what they BOTH wanted and felt was right. We were not in this to convince anyone that we are better than they or more prepared. K deserved to have a loving and graceful transition and she did. It could not have been more peaceful. They were so patient with me as I said goodbye and kissed her chubsy cheeks one last time.

Again, sorry for a lack of details, but its just really not important. If you wanna know more, you can email me @ mollykshockley@hotmail.com

All day I have felt peace and known that God is holding K. Thank you so much for all of the texts, emails, messages, phone calls and cards. You have no idea how much your words soothe this ache in our hearts. When you have adopted 3, you simply can't stay sad at tragedies like this. We know that all 3 of our blessings came to us as miracles, and we know God has got something planned for us. So tonight we rest in His promises and love...
