Our little Miracle Bristol

I have been a little slow at posting lately. The day we got Bristol I grew very sick with a bad Sinus Infection I have not been out of bed for days. I wanted to tell the whole story about her. To help clear some things up. We went to meet with a adoption agency in Mesquite and talk to them about adopting again. They had told us they were swamped they had 3 babies being born this week. The family that had been working with this Birth Mom had backed out early that day. The social worker asked us, She said weird question could I get some family pictures and present them to the mom and tell her about you guys. We said yes, they presented the picture's to her and she new right away this was the family for her baby. She said she was never settled with the other adopted family and she could not believe how meant to be this was. We went Monday night and had dinner with her and her two kids. It was great. She was so nice and I felt like she was my sister and I had know her my whole life. Things were great. We meet her Wednesday at the hospital with some of her family as she gave birth. It was so neat to see. We spent countless hours at the Hospital with her in her room and with the baby. Saturday Morning about 3:30 am I got a text from her. She was saying she was a little sad. She new she was doing what was best for the baby. But she was still very sad. We headed down early that morning to the hospital and we had a great talk. There were a lot of tears involved. She said she had felt like a miracle was taking place and that she could not believe this was so meant to be. It was a great experience. I can not believe all the happiness we have had and how happy every one around us is for us. Everyone can see Heavenly Fathers hand in this.
           I also know that Jason and I have spent countless hours and the temple this past year doing my Family temple work. We new that Bristol was coming soon because Of experience we have had in the temple. We also no that we have been blessed with her because of are dedication to the temple and the work. Bristol holds a special middle name after my grandma that we have been doing all the temple work for. We feel like she was sent here to us as a blessing for helping her out. We have had such a great experience with all this.

Bristol is truly an angel! We love her so much already. She is such a perfect fit for your family. I'm happy that her birth mom chose your family and wanted a better life for her than she could provide. You deserve all the blessings you've received and I'm sure that Grandma is so grateful for all the work you've done for her family. What a privilege it will be for her to carry on that name.

Can't wait to hang out next weekend!

I hope everyone in your life sees that blessings come to you when it's your time. I know a lot of people are facing hard times and you guys have paid your dues. It is YOUR time. Your hard work, faithfulness and persistence has paid off. Remember to always look to Heavenly Father for guidance and not worry about things that are out of your control (coming from a control freak, that's hard to say). You are supposed to have that little girl in your family, she was meant to be and others will find their way to their right homes too!!! Keep your head up and don't let anything get you down. Enjoy this time with Bristol!!! You deserve it!!! DON'T EVER DOUBT THAT or I'll have to come down and smack you around. We don't want that, do we? CONGRATULATIONS!!!
