A bittersweet moving on
It seems really wild to me that we've only been in our home for a little over 2.5 years. Our home is such a place of comfort and security for me and I feel so very connected to these four walls. We've lived so much life here. When we moved in, we were in the middle of a lot of fertility testing and I felt so raw and broken. The Lord did so much work in my heart and in our family and within 6 months of being here we felt a clear direction to start wholehearted pursuing adoption. Three months later a test was positive and we were planning for not one baby, but two. Since then, it's been a whirlwind. Preparing for babies, walking through a failed match, bringing Campbell home, and then giving birth to our girl. We've walked through immense joy in parenting and being able to live out some of our greatest desires. There have been lots of tears shed here and lots of laughter shared. We've lived a lot of big life here and this home is such a reminder to me of what the Lord has done, so preparing to leave has been incredibly emotional for me. I love this home, I love the life the Lord gave us here and I'll forever be grateful for all the memories that stored in my heart. Our kids will never remember living here, but we will have hundreds of photos and videos to show them of their life here. The Lord has been so sweet to us here on 2828 and I just couldn't be more thankful. A few weeks ago we took some final photos here with Kristy Haughwout Photography and I'm so glad we have these real life moments captured.
