I felt more relief than anything which I wasn't expecting actually. But we are all, the boys included delighted that Jacob has joined our family forever.
Over the past few months we have got to know Jacob better and better, he is very sociable and loves to be talked to and smiles at everyone. He loves to eat and sleep and laugh! But his absolute favourite thing in the world is Sam, no one can make him laugh the way Sam does.
There were so many unknowns coming into this year, would we adopt Jacob, how could we leave Haiti for a few months, how would we afford it, how would we go from summer to Canadian winter...etc
But God knew and he had it under control and here we are just a few months later with the process complete. We are so thankful to all who have prayed for us and those who have continued to support us.
When it became apparent adoption was Jacobs only option and we were told we had two weeks to get to Canada we started to talk about the practical details and I shared at prayer meeting and said ‘It almost seems impossible.’ To which one of the other missionaries responded ‘Nothing is impossible with God.’
How right he was.
