Two years ago, today, Brian met his new sons and I was reunited with them, but for the first time as their mom.
It was sacred and indescribable, when, before my eyes I witnessed the beginnings of restoration from pain and brokenness.
The 3 hour ride I sat in wonder as we held our newest precious children, only communicating with smiles and touch...stopping along the way to grab chicken on a stick, not knowing what the days ahead would hold but believing God each step of the way because He was and is and will always be faithful.
It goes beyond language and color. There is a heart language between parent and child that bridges the gap of Lusoga and English.
We know Jesus more because of these joyfilled sons.
But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.
His matchless love compels us to love.
Today is a big deal in the Downs Home. We celebrate and remember Christ in it all!
We are family because the LORD gave us to one another and because YOU prayed for, gave generously, cheered on, walked with, and welcomed all of us into your hearts and lives!
