“We want Aida to be ours… so badly. But even though it’s hard … more than that, we want what’s best for her, we want Your plan. And if that means her staying in the place where she was born… then let it be done Lord. “
And while I was getting ready for bed, I pictured your relatives getting ready for the day. Making the long trip to court. And I prayed for our Provider’s supernatural peace and wisdom and comfort to overcome them. To let them know what is best.
I fell asleep, knowing that while we were sleeping, people were going to court and making a decision that would alter the rest of two families’ lives. And while we were sleeping, they were given an unimaginable choice (that no one should ever have to make) for the third and final time.
And while we were sleeping, they chose to love you by letting you go.
And while we were sleeping, you became one step closer to becoming ours.
