As I mentioned yesterday, I headed down to the baby room with Lindi and her caregiver while Matt and the boys stayed back.
Being in her familiar place was definitely the way to get to know each other a little. I sat down on the cushioned corner of the room near her and slowly started handing her toys. Eventually she came closer and closer. And finally I got to pick her up!
And as you can see above, she got use to Daddy too.
Once she was more comfortable with us, our family headed down to a little lounge and fed her lunch. Originally we were told that the first visit is typically only an hour (it had already been a couple).
To our surprise, we were invited to come back after nap time if we would like. YES!
And I knew in my heart that this little girl, through God’s amazing grace and his redemptive work, belonged in our family. Such joy! Pure gift!
