Faith's dedication was on September 11, 2011. What an awesome day. This was also 2 days after we received our referral of sweet Baby E, so we were able to rejoice and celebrate God's goodness on this day for BOTH of our girls.
We were blessed to have so many wonderful friends and family join us for church and for our little party afterwards. They came from near and far. She even had 3 great aunts attend the festivities, as well as Nana and Pop, and Mee-Maw and Pappy, of course! We had friends who traveled for hours and even stayed overnight so that they could witness our little girl being dedicated to God.
Somewhere along the line, Pastor Ken gave the mic to Brad, who ended up telling his entire testimony of his experience with 9/11. Such a humbling moment to realize that Faith wouldn't even be here if there wasn't divine intervention that day. It was also an awesome moment to realize that the last time we were before our congregation, it was to tell about our heart for adoption, and how we could welcome ONE more into our family. Only God knew that we would soon welcome TWO and how these two little girls would forever be entwined and connected through a journey of faith and redemption.
We know God has BIG plans for both Faith and Baby E. It's going to be our privilege to watch and help fulfill those plans!
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
