As we came in the door to our apartment I saw his cars on the table. He had been here. The staff had shown him around and he was excited to see a tv that he hoped to watch and not have to share. If our son adjusts to us well he will come and stay here too and then we will move to our hotel in the city after a few days.
I just want to say thank you to all the freinds and family and blog readers who have been praying for us! Leaving my children at home was such a huge challenge, even though I knew how well cared for they would be, it left an ache in my heart to say good-bye. Each day we skype and I see their faces smiling bright and I know that God has changed my sadness to joy! He brought peace in place of anxiety!
"You turned my wailing into dancing;
you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
that my heart may sing to you and not be silent.
O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever."
Psalm 30: 11-12
Today I will meet my son.
Today I will hold him in my arms.
Today I rejoice in God my Savior.
Today is a day I will never forget!
Today is a gift.
