Happy Birthday Brian

Tonight was Bunko night for me. All the girls were there, no subs!! Again, God’s timing is perfect. After we were done playing and opening gifts, I announced to the group our intention to adopt. Everyone was happy for us. A year earlier, T’s husband had lost his job and the girls got together and gave her a prayer box with lots of prayers. She decided it was time to pass the box along. YEAH GOD!!! “Hear this you distant nations: Before I was born the Lord called me; from my birth He has made mention of my the shadow of His hand He hid me." Isaiah 49:1-2

The journey is about to begin

sent in our application to attend a pre-adoption workshop in Arlington, TX for Saturday March 12th. “For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you, not to harm you. To give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11 Earlier in February Brian and I were throwing names around and everything I wanted such as: Zoe, Chloe, Lexi, Lacy Brian did not like. One Saturday morning we were both laying in bed discussing the whole process and I was very adamant about having a name picked out. I threw out the name Darci and he liked it. We had already decided that Danae would be her middle name. Darci Danae Roberts. We both liked it so we were sticking to that. Later that morning it dawned on me that her initials would be identical to mine. DDR. Isn’t God great!!
