HOW MAKENZIE FOUND US

JOSH AND I HAVE HAD OUR PROFILE ON LDS WEBSITE FOR ABOUT 5 YEARS, THE PICTURES ON THERE I HAD NOT UPDATED THEM FOR A COUPLE YEARS, AS MANY OF YOU KNOW WE HAD DECIDED TO GO WITH ANOTHER AGENCY WE FELT LIKE LDS WAS NOT BEING TO HELPFUL, BUT STILL HAD OUR PROFILE ON LDS, AND THEY WHERE STILL DOING OUR HOME STUDY FOR US. WHEN I READ  THE MOST BEAUTIFUL EMAIL BY MAKENZIE IT WAS FROM LDS I WAS SO, SO HAPPY. LATER WHEN WE MET WITH HER AND HER MOM SHE SAID THAT SHE KNEW SHE WANTED THIS BABY TO HAVE A DAD, AND THAT IS ONE THING SHE CAN'T BE, SHE SAID IN THE EMAIL THAT SHE HAD BEEN STUDYING  THE FAMILY PROCLAMATION, SHE THEN SAID SHE WOULD NOT BE THE PERSON SHE IS TODAY IF SHE DIDN'T HAVE A DAD, SHE IS A DADDY'S GIRL I LOVE THAT. SHE HAS A GREAT RELATIONSHIP WITH HER MOM AND DAD. SO SHE KNEW THAT SHE NEEDED TO PLACE THIS CHILD FOR ADOPTION, SHE HAS SEEN IT BLESS OTHER'S BOTH HER COUSINS WHERE ADOPTED.HER MOM HAD GONE TO LDS FAMILY SERVICES WEB SITE LOOKING AT FAMILIES SHE SAID IT WAS THREE IN THE MORNING WHEN SHE FOUND US, WE WHERE TO THE END, SHE SAID SHE WAS GETTING WORRIED CUZ SHE HADN'T FOUND THE FAMILY, THEN SHE FOUND US, SHE SAID SHE KNEW THAT WE WHERE THAT FAMILY, SHE WOKE UP MAKENZIE DAD, THEN LATER ON THAT MORNING MAKENZIE HAD WATCHED LONESOME DOVE WITH HER DAD, JOSH HAD PUT THAT AS ONE OF HIS FAVORITE MOVIES AS MAKENZIE WAS READING THIS SHE FELT LIKE THIS WAS ANOTHER WAY THE LORD WAS TELLING HER THAT WE WHERE THE ONES, AS I HAVE TALKED WITH HER I USUALLY TEXT, OR TALK TO HER EVERYDAY, SHE HAS SAID WHAT PEACE SHE HAS FELT, SHE SAYS SHE FEEL LIKE HEAVENLY FATHER HAS PUT HER IN A BUBBLE AND SHE IS PROTECTED. I WAS TALKING WITH MY MOM THE OTHER DAY AND I WAS TELLING HER I THINK THAT THERE IS ANGELS HELPING THESE SWEET BIRTH MOM AND THERE
 FAMILIES, I BELIEVE THAT WHEN THEY HAVE TO SIGN THOSE PAPER, THE LORD IS THERE HELPING THEM AND ANGLES AS WELL. I WAS TALKING WITH MAKENZIE MOM JACKIE THE OTHER DAY, AND SHE WAS SAYING HOW SHE FEELS AT PEACE AS WELL I AM SURE THE LORD IS HELPING THEM AS WELL. ADOPTION IS WONDERFUL THE LOVE THAT SO, SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE FOR THESE SWEET BABIES, SHE HAD CONTACTED US WHEN SHE WAS ALMOST 13 WEEK, AT FIRST I WAS LIKE LORD WHY WOULD I HAVE TO WAIT MORE, WHEN I HAVE WAITED YEARS, BUT AS THE WEEKS HAVE GONE BY I HAVE FELT SO MUCH LOVE FOR MY HEAVENLY FATHER HE KNEW THIS IS WHAT OUR LITTLE FAMILY NEEDED. I HAVE LOVED EVERY MINUTE, I HAVE LOVED GETTING TO KNOW THIS SPECIAL PERSON MAKENZIE, I HAVE LOVED GETTING TO KNOW HER, AND HER FAMILY, THEY ARE NOW ALL APART OF OUR FAMILY, THEY LOVE ZAK, AND TREAT HIM AS IF HE WAS THERE GRANDCHILD, AND ZAK JUST LOVES MAKENZIE,WE GOT TO SEE HER AND HER MOM AND MEET HER SISTER ALLEE, WE WENT TO LUNCH AND THEN SHOPPING THEN THEY CAME OVER TO OUR HOUSE, I WILL ALWAYS TREASURE THESE MOMENTS, AND I WILL ALWAYS BE THANKFUL TO MY HEAVENLY FATHER FOR GUIDING BOTH OF OUR PATHS SO WE COULD BE APART OF EACH OTHERS LIFE'S, WE HAVE BOTH HELPED EACH OTHER. NEXT WEEK SHE WILL BE 30 WEEKS, I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S ALMOST HERE, AS I WRITE THIS THE TEARS KEEP COMING, I CAN'T WAIT TO HOLD HER IN MY ACHING ARMS, AND TELL HER HOW LOVED SHE IS AND HOW SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE BEEN PRAYING FOR HER, I CAN'T WAIT FOR ZAK TO MEET HIS SISTER I KNOW HE ALREADY AS MEET HER,BUT I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE HIM HOLD HER. WHEN KAYLEE DIED IT WAS REALLY HARD ON HIM, HE STILL TALKS ABOUT IT. WE COULD NOT BE  ANY HAPPIER, I KNOW NOW HEAVENLY FATHER DOES HEAR US AND DOES ANSWER OUR PRAYERS EVEN IF THEY DO TAKE YEARS, I HAVE LEARNED SO MANY GREAT THINGS THESE LAST COUPLE MOMENTS, I HAVE GROWN AS A PERSON. AND FOR THAT I AM THANKFUL:) :) I KNOW MAKENZIE COULD DO BETTER TELLING THIS STORY I AM SURE I LEFT OUT MANY THINGS,THANKS AGAIN EVERYONE ONE FOR ALL YOUR PRAYERS, AND LOVE AND SUPPORT FOR OUR LITTLE FAMILY...
