showing off

"It's like God's just showing off at this point."

these words were spoken by one of my closest girlfriends who has walked beside us during our entire adoption journey on the day we were driving to Columbus to get our girl.

And it's so true.

Every possible, seemingly minute detail of her story, our story, has just been so beautifully orchestrated. It gives me goosebumps - even after having witnessed it all firsthand, even after having lived it.

Her name (Nyla Grace) means Gift of Grace, and honestly, this little 8lb 8oz baby has taught us more about grace in her three short weeks of life than quite possibly any other situation we've ever encountered.

In the coming weeks I hope to share with you the incredible ways God has clearly - unmistakably - showed up, intervened, and showed us what His grace looks like.

But right now, I've got a baby wrapped on my front and a toddler asking to play choo choos with him, so the start of the story's going to have to wait.
