Warming Up

Since we started talking to the boys about adopting Tavin, Tucker was instantly on board and totally accepting of it as if that's just how you naturally get a new brother. It has been really so sweet to see. Maddox, being not quite three....well it's harder to explain it to him, and he just would reply "no" whenever I would try to talk about it with him. I've been praying that God would prepare his heart for another brother, and this week whenever he's seen Tavin's picture (on my phone, on my binder, on the computer - yes I like to see his face a lot) he has gotten so excited and recognized him. When I asked if he wanted to bring him to our house he said "yes" instead of "no". Progress!

Tonight when I put the boys to bed, Maddox wanted to pray (seriously, so sweet) for "dada" who has been oversees the last 12 days and comes home tonight. After he did, and said "amen", he said "Ah forgot pray Tavin!" I asked if he wanted to, and he said yes, so he prayed "Tavin come home safe...Tavin come Maddox's house. (mumbling more about Tavin), amen." Its probably the 3rd or 4th prayer he has initiated on his own.

Answer to prayer! Melted my heart. I love my boys...can't wait to welcome our third.


If you would be willing to support our adoption of Tavin, you can click on the link to the right of the blog, or click  here for our family sponsorship page. It is already humbling to see the love and support we have felt in a few short weeks! It would be incredible if we could reach $1000 by the end of the month!
