Baby Shower for Lizzie - God's Story

Over the past months our small group from church has been praying for a family in our group who was in the waiting process of adoption. We have had the privilege of praying specifically and watching God write the story for this precious family.  Getting to see how God has gone before them has been faith growing and just plain fun to watch.  There have been so many answers to prayer from the health of the baby to protection for the birth mom; for favor with the hospital staff to bringing that precious baby girl home.  Getting a front row seat to a God size story of redemption is awesome to watch and to have been a small part of.  To read Christy's blog on becoming a family of six you an click here and to read Carol's perspective on this big modern family (since their children are siblings) your can click here

We asked Christy what she would like Lizzie's baby shower to look like and she requested a Girls Night Out, so that's what we did.  It was fun to all be together, to eat yummy food, get to sit and visit and then hear her share some of the "God moments" where they really felt like God went before them in this adoption process was so fun to hear her recount.  Christy, we are thrilled for your family and for all that God has done in the past years as He has been writing this story.  What a mighty God we serve.  He knew (and knows) the desires of our hearts and to see Him provide in this way has truly been remarkable!  We stand in awe of what He's done and look forward to watching Lizzie become all that God intends for her to be.
I was in my happy place holding sweet baby Lizzie, she is such a little cuddle bug!
