Here we are in 2016 and I haven’t posted in over a year and a half. We are right at the moment where we decided 4 years ago that we wanted to foster-to-adopt. When I go back through and read all of these posts, my tears won’t stop coming because it is a complete view of what God can do.
Remembering those raw feelings I had in the first posts about the possibility of losing Sky (my little Jedi) is like going back to those moments. Remembering what it felt like to think there was no way I could raise a 9-year-old boy, and now knowing I was able to do 9, 10, and 11 …. but what about this 12-year-old?! Can I really raise a pre-teen? A TEEN? Remembering all of the labels that were over their heads, and seeing how God has broken through every single one. Sky was born addicted to meth and people constantly said he would have learning problems. He is a 3 year old and the milestones he is reaching now are that of a 5 year old. God likes to defy all odds. Bricion came to us with a diagnoses of ADHD and bipolar, but after being with us for a year, they decided he must be “misdiagnosed.” Or maybe my God is a healer. 😉 Here we are, a family of 4 Grays, and we have overcome. THEY have overcome.
For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. 1 John 5:4
