Sometimes (often?) we would prefer to ignore a prompting from the Holy Spirit. It might seem like life would be easier if we took our own path, but experience tells a different story. After disobeying God's lead, we spend so much time trying to do better/go back/fix it to make up for our disobedience. This is one of those instances...
We were contacted by our social worker, asking us to consider the placement of a 7-month-old baby boy. Our heads told us that three kids is a lot and we're finally finding our groove as a family of 5 and taking another is illogical. Our hearts told us we'd always regret if we said no.
Our first afternoon/evening as a family of 6 was hectic!! But imagine Mama Lauren's delight when she learned she was needed to hold a baby and hold a bottle. She's a professional.
He's a happy little man
and loved already.
