The Light

The Light

Adoption

A couple weeks ago, I shared a little insight into our personal life. A heaviness that has been over our family the past few months. Then like a flick of a switch, we received the most amazing news that reminded us of how blessed we truly are and how wonderful things are going to be. 

On July 25th, our three amazing babies will finally be ours forever! 

Yes, our adoption finalization is scheduled and happening this month! I can hardly believe it. Two years ago, I shared our plans to adopt and our journey along the way. On Monday, we finally sign the paperwork to make everything official – we’ve been dreaming of this day for so long! 

Now, I can finally introduce you to our three kids as OURS. I can show you their sweet faces and share all the stories in the world with no hesitation or fear. I can’t tell you how good it feels to finally come to this light at the end of the tunnel. For the longest time, I’ve watched so many friends have their babies after that 9 month wait. I’ve seen the joy in their eyes when they finally held their babies in their arms, knowing they were theirs forever. Always.

And now, we can finally hold our kids in our arms and feel that same exact way! 

You better believe my family and our close friends will be there to celebrate this special day. A day we will never forget. A day that we will always celebrate and praise God for. A day, we finally see that our prayers, our hopes and faith did not fail. He did not fail. We are so incredibly blessed to have been called to this long journey. But the longer the wait, the better the reward. We now have three of the most beautiful, loving, caring, sweetest, funniest, darling little human beings any parent could ask for. 

I am planning on hiring a photographer to capture this very special day, so stay tuned for some pictures. Perhaps you will feel all our emotions coming through those photographs! Because I can guarantee we will be crying some pretty sweet tears of joy! 

Thank you for being part of this chapter in our lives – we are happy to share it with you all!

XOXO, Lidy

    How exciting. L and I have seen you both with these lovely kids from across the street for quite some time now, and there is no doubt that the love and care that you so warmly and instinctively display is that which can only be received from mom and dad.

    Wow what a blessing! I just started following your little space and I’m so encouraged by your love for your kids. My husband and I also have a heart for fostering to adopt. We have four biologically but since the beginning we’ve always wanted to adopt. Thank you for giving me hope to continue with our dream:)

    • HelloLidy

      I am SO happy you came upon my blog! It brings me so much joy to hear of your desire to adopt and I’m so glad our story has been an encouragement to you :) It is the most amazing experience, hard at times, but SO worth it. Our kids have brought us so much joy and blessed our lives in ways I couldn’t ever have imagined. Please keep in touch and if you ever have any questions, contact me at any time! Best of luck with your journey – the seed has already been planted and that’s the first step whether we know it or not 😉

      XOXO

    SO excited for you Lids! It’s been a looong journey, but God is faithful and has walked, nay, carried you through it! I can’t wait to finally meet your beautiful, chocolate kiddos and have you meet my latte kiddos, and have them meet each other! I’m excited to have you on Canadian soil again my friend. Love you so so so much!

    • HelloLidy

      Thank you so much friend. What a blessing you are to us! I cannot wait for our babies to meet and be best friends 😉 It will be so good to be closer to family and friends – our support system! Love you and thank you for your constant prayers and support!

      XOXO
