When God Closes a Door . . .

We said goodbye to George this morning as he was officially placed in the care of his new family.

With that in mind, here are my quotes for the day:

“Goodbyes are sad yet they should also be cherished because it is this word that causes all memories to come flooding back as if they had happened yesterday.”

(Technically speaking, they did happen yesterday!)

And one last quote which I will be using as a mantra:

“When God closes a door, somewhere he opens a window.”

I think this quote is applicable to our family’s situation, but casting aside any feelings of self-pity on my part, as for George’s situation I think it’s more appropriate to say that today God has closed a window in his life and opened up a GREAT BIG DOOR.

Thank goodness for safe, nurturing and PERMANENT homes for children in foster care!

Bittersweet! So glad that George had you to keep him safe while things were sorted out for his best. Good luck with whatever comes next!

We're foster parents as well. We are officially waiting for a forever child that is legally free for adoption. We're so excited.
