I just had to re-post this picture because he’s so handsome!
I have been floating on cloud nine for days because of my last post – because my friend Jessica was able to meet Kirk and show him our picture, and get lots of great pictures of him!
There is so much emotion wrapped up in my heart and mind. It’s been easy thus far to get lost and busy in the work of getting Kirk home. To be task-oriented and focused. To mark things off my list. Some days I would busily work towards our goal and barely give a glance to his little picture hanging on the fridge.
Yet, something has changed in the last few days… a switch went off. And he is no longer just a picture – one single little photo – cluttered in with the magnets on the fridge door. He is our son. No judge has appointed me as his mother yet, but he is our son. And I want so badly to make him smile and hold his hand and kiss his cheek and hug him close. Today I want nothing more than to have him here with us. I have mingled feelings of excitement that Jessica was able to see him and touch him and talk to him…. and also feeling sad because it’s not me there with him.
I can see God slowly making a transition in our hearts as we are getting much closer to getting him home.
And my Mama-Heart can hardly wait.
