Tree of Life (or 10 Months Part 2)

Yesterday I promised to share something special today to celebrate 10 months on the waiting list.

This morning, at 11:15 am, we met our "tree of life."

"Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life." ~ Proverbs

Last week we were notified that our little Levi possibly adoptable again, and last night we found out about spontaneous parenthood, which began today!

I have a million pictures to share, and when the time is right I'll share some of the story.  I am still figuring out how much to keep private as part of Levi's life story.  I promise, I'm working on a way to relay our story (it's so wonderful, that ONLY God can take the credit).

Levi, born August 18, 2010, will be 8 weeks old tomorrow.   And cute?  That's an understatement.

Thank you x 1,000,000 for you prayers.  Seriously.

  1. Oh Michelle, I can't wait to hear how God orchestrated this whole waiting room into today's "tree of life"! I've shed tears for you today - all tears of joy & tears of overwhelming emotion from being flooded with everything we felt the day our "tree of life" was put in our arms! God is SOOO Good - ALL the time!

  7. Wow! I'm happy for you guys. I hope he's sleeping through the night already. Although you probably won't mind much if he isn't. You probably can't keep you eyes off him. ;)
