Seven years ago today – seven years ago – we met our children for the first time. It was a day filled with hope, longing fulfilled, and exhaustion. Dimples was all energy. Eby was cautious, quiet,and scared. Little Man was a tiny baby who seemingly adjusted with ease. Bee was charming and captured our hearts. We didn’t know then that the next year we would travel back to Ethiopia and bring her home to our family too.
This is a day when I pause and consider what God has done in our lives and in our family. We are not the people we were before these four incredible children became part of the Qualls family. The Lord has walked so closely with us, through the suffering, the joy, the tearing and mending of our hearts. He is still with us.
On our Forever Day, February 24, I remember that we are forever changed. Thanks be to God.
We have no idea what the next year will bring. And we trust him.
Do you celebrate Forever Day?
