My Adoption Thanksgiving Prayer

It was a year from today that we we received our adoption referral for our son Nikolai. It was a special day that we will never forget and I have feebly tried to put in words some of my thoughts about it. Nikolai has been home for 7 months now and he is the reason for so many wonderful blessings in our lives. Nikolai we love you and give thanks for you this day!

It was a year from today that we first heard your name
Saw your face
Heard your laugh
Allowed ourselves to dream...

In those days and weeks before we held you in our arms
Before we saw your face
Heard your laugh
Held you close and warm

We thanked God for His children
For the son he gave to us
Born half way around the world
Clearly meant for us

We thank God for you on this THANKSGIVING DAY
And we pray for the others that are still waiting today
That their forever families will soon hear their name,
See their face, hear their laugh and allow themselves to dream.

Wishing you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving!
