Family of Three

We have been a family of three for just over three years. Three years that in some ways have flashed past me in the blink of an eye. Three years that were full of looong days and sometimes even longer weeks. But the three of us have made it to this point together having learned how to be a good team, how to play together, work together and enjoy each other's company.

That's all about to change. We are beyond excited about the Lord adding to our family through our adoption. But I have to be honest and admit that there is part of me that is sad to say goodbye to our little family of three. I'm holding on to these waning days of Haven being an only child and trying, more then I usually do, to make the most of each day.

Haven is more then ready to share the spotlight at our house. I think she is even more excited then we are sometimes about having a baby in our family. In fact she's already wondering who's next after her little brother. It seems silly to say this, because of course the Lord ordained it this way, but Haven is made to be a big sister. I love talking about how our family is growing and am amazed at the way her three year old mind seems to comprehend adoption.

Our family is growing and changing and we are all as ready for it as we can be. I'm daily trying to strike the balance of savoring these last few moments of our little family while looking with joy at the days ahead when we see the face that belongs to the person we've been longing for. It's coming soon!

I just wonder who's going to hold the baby when we try to take self portraits?

I think we'll gladly figure it out.
