Visiting with Little Guy

This past weekend we traveled over 2 hours to go see Little Guy in his new home. As most of you know, Little Guy was our foster baby that was with us from 6 days old to 7 months. He's only been gone 3 1/2 weeks. At one time we were told that we were most likely going to get to adopt him. But it all fell through.

My heart has been aching for him so badly. I miss him so much. I felt like he was my baby. But we keep trusting God and believing that God placed him in his family member's home for a reason. I may not understand it all. But I trust the Lord. And I am SO thankful that he is in a good home. His family welcomed us in to their home on Saturday to visit with our Little Guy. And we enjoyed it SO much!! He was so happy and smiling and "talking". He's obviously doing well. And for that I am so thankful.

My pregnancy continues to go well. I am getting very big (at least it seems that way to me!). I have really "expanded" (haha!) over the last few weeks. It's all in my stomach. And sometimes I think, "If I'm this big already, how big am I going to be at 40 weeks?!" :)

As I get closer to 26 weeks, each day I feel myself getting a little more relaxed in my pregnancy and not so worried that I'm going to lose the baby. That has been a fear that often tried to plague me. But I just keep hanging on and trusting the Lord.

I hope you all are doing well! I'll try to post another pic soon of the new, updated (and bigger!) me! :) Have a wonderful day!

Hi Birdie! Just wanted to pop in and say hi! I'm so glad you are doing so well. I check in regularly, but don't usually have time to comment. (I had my rainbow baby back on June 14th so things are hoppin' around here!)

So very happy for you... and thrilled that you got to see Little Guy. The difference you made in his life is just amazing. So inspiring!

Take good care of yourself and keep these updates coming!

I know you must be missing him every day. I'm so sorry that it didn't work out for you to adopt him, but the impact that you and your husband had on his life will be with him forever. Praying that the Lord will continue to comfort you and provide for him exactly what he'll need for a happy and healthy future. You're such a special lady!

Enjoy this time in your pregnancy! It's a wonderful time, and yes, that belly will continue to amaze you in the coming weeks! ;)
