Transition is Coming

It is inevitable. The transition is coming.

Next week Molly begins having overnight visits with her birth mom. The goal is to move her in with her mom permanently the first week of November. It is crazy to me that I just typed that. Our baby girl that we brought home from the hospital a year ago will be moving out in less than a month. 

Here is where it gets good. God has been so present and gracious with us. We have had months to help get us as emotionally, mentally, and physically prepared as possible. I am not naive to think that it isn’t going to hurt to say good bye to her. I am not thinking that it is going to be easy by any means. But God has met me in such a tangible way throughout these last few months that I can’t help but know that He is capable to carry us through. He’s done it before and I know that He will do it again! 

We have a community that has rallied around us. I have 4 amazing chocolate eyes that stare me down daily that serve as a constant reminder of God’s faithfulness. I am enveloped in a supernatural peace that can only be explained by God. The countless prayers on our behalf are being felt in such real ways. 

From the beginning when we first said yes to Molly, God has made it clear that He loves her and that He can be trusted with her.  I don’t know what this looks like, but I don’t have to know. God can be trusted. Time and time again He has brought to my attention Exodus 14:14. “The Lord will fight for you, you need only to be still.” I will continue to pray protection over Molly for the rest of my life. 

Our prayer is to stay in her life as long as her birth mom will allow. So far she has been so gracious to  us. Praying that we can continue to build an awesome relationship with her and invest in not only Molly, but Molly’s mom and 2 of her siblings that she will be moving in with. God is great at multi tasking and I know that He is up to something good.

Stay tuned and we can figure it all out together 🙂

    Very cool. What big hearts you and Jason have to take in the relationship with Mollys mom. It probably was or is not easy but you are sharing Jesus with her I am sure through your actions. Well done faithful friend!
