Britt’s Gotcha Day 2019

All the feels today, friends.

On this day, two years ago Britt Bradford Slaughter was placed in my arms for the very first time…from that moment on our hearts would never be the same.
 I’m not sure if you can tell in the picture but pictured above are three super excited kids, one baby who was scared to death leaving everything and everyone she’d ever known, and two terrified parents who had no clue what was in store but were stepping out in faith.  

Looking back we’ve come so far in the last two years.

Two years ago we had a teeny baby who couldn’t walk or crawl or talk and today she can do all of those things.

Post Adoption Updates…

 Britt has gone from super shy and reserved to Miss Personality.  She’s always talking, dancing, singing, and full of life around our house. 

 We’re her people.  And we’re so very thankful she’s ours.

 If God has placed adoption on your heart, I pray today that you’ll act on it.  I’m so very glad we did.  There are kiddos out there just like Britt waiting for their forever family, someone to be in their corner, to comfort them, to cheer them on, to protect them, and to love them.  I pray that someone reading today might be that family for a child who’s waiting.

We could have missed this, but I’m so glad we didn’t.  Our Britty is the sweetest and we love her big.

Now I’m off to enjoy the day with this sweet girl of mine.

Happy Wednesday!

    How has it been 2 years. I remember the day you went on your blog and I was so excited for you! We leave in just over 2 weeks and I nodded my head when you said two terrified parents stepping out in faith! This is so encouraging to read right before we leave and step out in faith!
