before we knew who she was I knew deep in my heart that we were getting a daughter. during our time of waiting we often sang a song at church called ever be, leading us to the name Ever which eventually morphed into Everly and the words go like this +
“bringing beauty from ashes, for you will have your bride.
free of all her guilt and rid of all her shame
And known by her true name, and that’s why I sing
Your praise will ever be on my lips, ever be on my lips.” +
Our Ever girl. Better than we could have ever dreamed and loved beyond measure. My girl, I pray you always know who you are, a cherished child of the King, loved, chosen, wanted and part of a family who’d move heaven and earth for you. Happy Adoption Day Everly Jean. #morefullfacepicstocome #sorrynotsorry #ohmyever
