On Father's Day we went to the zoo.
Just look at this wild animal:
It was hot, but we had fun.
Thank you, Jesus, for our blessings.
Now, to completely switch gears, it is funny how God works. I was looking for something this morning and I happened to find Aiden's birth story. Owen asked if I had a birth story for him. I looked it up. Here is the quote I found: "Shawn says we might adopt in 4-5 years, earlier if I can convince him ."
Owen was born in 2005. We started the adoption process 5 1/2 years after Shawn made this comment. I didn't try to convince him of the adopting earlier, but when it came time to adopt, there was no waiting on my part. I jumped in with both feet.
God was at work in Shawn's and my heart way back then. I had completely forgotten about even talking about it that early on. We had talked about it again in 2008, but decided to get pregnant instead.
God's plans, God's timing.
I guess I should also add that today is our 14th anniversary. Another one of God's blessings.
Thank you God!
