Birthparents:)

 
 
Can you see that little double chin starting??? 
 
 
 
Yesterday we had our first post placement visit... So we all piled in the van and headed a couple of hours away to meet at the agency... We set up a visit with Isaiah's birthparents after we had our visit with the agency rep...
 
Honestly, I always leave those get togethers feeling pretty blown away, so thankful,  and in awe of God's work in bringing us our child through adoption... Yesterday was no different.
 
It was the first time that we got to meet Isaiah's birthdad... He was much quieter than his spunky fun loving birthmom... but sweet and kind as well.  You could see how much he cared for Isaiah and was excited to get lots of pictures of him.  I am so thankful that we were able to get some pictures of Isaiah with both of them and of all of us all together.  I am so glad to have that for Isaiah someday. 
 
It is funny...even though we didn't know him before yesterday, the conversation flowed easy... Isaiah's birthmom makes that a piece of cake... She is hilarious... It was the first time that both of them met any of our other kids.  I was just praying that we wouldn't overwhelm them.  We had a great visit. 
 
Our prayer is that while they have been a HUGE  blessing in our life by giving us Isaiah... that someday and in someway we could be a blessing to them and that the Lord would use us in their lives... I have no idea what that might look like but that is my prayer...

How wonderful for all party's involved when the lines of communication are left open. My mom was adopted by her uncle and aunt (my beloved Mamaw and Papaw) she did not know that Her dad's niece was her mom until she was 13. Yet always knowing her softened any pain or rejection. Isaiah is so blessed and SOOOO CUTE!!!!
