Looking Forward

This week will fly by I am sure. We are really enjoying the beautiful weather and are looking forward to this weekend when Tate will be dedicated and we will be able to see all of the family! It sounds like probably all of our immediate families will be in attendance in addition to some friends and some of Tate's birth family! What a special and memorable weekend it will be. Tate is going to be able to meet his birth grandfather and birth great grandfather and see his birth grandmother as well. She was at the hospital when he was born, but hasn't seen him since. I am sure it will be a very emotional and special gathering that we will have on Saturday. Then, on Sunday, they will all be attending his dedication as well! Tate is so blessed to have so many people who love him! We are feeling really happy and blessed to be able to share part of Tate with his birth family. We cannot imagine doing it any other way! Tate will be able to look back on pictures and see how much love has surrounded him since he was born. We always look forward to our meetings with Brandon, Tate's birth father and now we are able to introduce him to even more of his birth family! We never imagined we would feel comfortable with a situation like this, but until we went through it, I don't think we could have ever begun to imagine how important and special it would beto be able to include Tate's birth family in our lives. Now, we can't imagine being comfortable not having them in our and Tate's lives! God definitely had a completely different plan for us and for how things would pan out and His plan far surpassed any expectations or plans we had of our own. God is SO GOOD! :)
