joyful for this precious family and for all the ways God has been working to make a family of two a family of four. you may recognize three of these faces from this post. the fourth face is their newest son, Benjamin. he is 11 years old, excited to be a Longshore, and officially signed his consent to be adopted today. holy cow, friends! these two boys had no family, and now they have parents who love them, who fought for them, who have been waiting and waiting for them, and they have each other. brothers! parents! sons!! it’s so freaking cool!! I said before, and will say again, that I think adoption is one of the most amazing pictures of God’s love for us. Longshores, I am excited for your beautiful new family, and grateful for the picture of Christ’s love that you are painting for the world and for your precious new sons. Congratulations!!!!!!
and in far less meaningful news, I am also thankful for this new discovery that I am currently enjoying. chocolate sorbet. it’s freaking good. like, really good. I may have had some last night also.
I’m not even ashamed. 🙂
