  7. This is a beautiful captured moment of pure JOY beyond any other! The moment a FAMILY is made! I about cried when I realized what he was holding! (HIs forever family photo.) I had not put two and two together to know that Jace was Robert until now. SO very glad that his forever family has come forward! He will surely be a blessed addition to their family as well as them to his life.
    Deeply, profoundly. beautiful!

  16. Okay, I am officially the biggest SAP on earth!! Seriously, do you know how may times I have cried tears of JOY for Robert (Jace!!) since I found out the exciting news?! I cannot even talk about it or share the news without choking up EVERY.SINGLE.TIME.!!!

    But you know what else chokes me up??? ~ it's being one of the last to comment on this post and getting to read how many other wonderful people (and I'm CERTAIN there are LOADS more than we see here!) that have been praying for his family to find him! God hears our prayers, and this is just another testimony of how awesome our Father is!

    We will continue to lift him and his new family up, and pray that their paperwork goes quickly and w/out any hangups.

    Love you, sweet boy... SOOOOO VERY happy for you and your new family!!!

    ***(oh how I hope they have a blog?! ~ anyone know??? ~ I'd LOVE to follow along on their jouney and I'm sure many others would, too!)

    Blessings and Hugs,

  17. It took me a minute to realize that Jace is Robert. I thought maybe there was a mistake until I started reading the comments. Our family has been praying daily for Robert. We have prayed that God would give him a family and also heal his heart completely. Because of Robert, I have seen the hearts of my kids and husband open up to the thought of adoption. My kids have wanted to go get him and bring him home. They have told me over and over how we could be his family and love him. So.....we've prayed as a family that Robert's forever family would come forward, whether it be us or another. I'm so happy to see that he now has a family. I believe that God has used little Robert to bring our family to the next step in possibly adopting. Thank you Jesus for giving Robert a family so that now he will know the love of a Mommy & Daddy. He has waited long enough....now it's his turn!

    It is so great to see the incredible smile! How much he loves when the other kids get a forever family and now he has his! I can imagine the celebration that took place! I had to leave the desk at work when i saw the * and go upstairs to do a happy dance! :D
    Love you Jace!
