We leave tomorrow for Philadelphia for Lily's heart surgery, which is scheduled for Friday
Although it was hard when it was postponed 2 weeks ago, you can read about it here (as well as details on the surgery),we are now very grateful for the extra days we have had together as a family
To enjoy moments like this
and to be blessed to be here for Cole's first day of kindergarten. When you adopt an older child, you miss SO many of their firsts, grateful I didn't miss this one (thanks Jen for the reminder)
Sometimes things don't happen according to our plan, and in the moment it is hard to see the reasons, but we have seen many reasons over these two weeks. What was such a hard situation has turned out to be such a blessing. Continually reminded to trust in our heavenly Father, who knows and sees way more than I do.
Please pray for our precious girl, handing her over to the surgeons on Friday will be one of the hardest things we have ever done. Our peace and comfort comes from knowing, that ultimately she is in God's hands.
We will update regularly on facebook and here, we don't have a time for surgery yet.
