life as it is seen from my heart and soul

the 3rd child

1 Comment

tomorrow…the 25th of January she will be 17 years old.  she is 5’9″ tall, a cheerleader, a photographer, a teenager with a messy room….and 17 years ago she came into the world at 3#14oz, not a peep from her, teeny tiny fingers and toes ~ 2 months premature…..who could have ever known?  what does God do to us when He gives us a child?  i remember bringing our son home from the adoption agency ~ 7 months old, cute fat cheeks, crying in the carseat with his new big sister patting him ~ saying it’s okay you are going to live in our home and i am your big sister.  and then there is the oldest ~ we had been told we couldn’t have children after trying for almost five years….and then we were pregnant.  and 3 weeks overdue we had the first one ~ a beautiful girl….21″ ; 8’4oz……blue eyes….so what does Man know?   God knew best and i am grateful for all three no matter what the difficulties or heartache.  none of it compares to what God my Father has gone through for me.  blessings and peace.
