It kind of strikes me odd that these people had no choices, no control, no options, no defenses.... what someone decided in an upstairs office decided their fate and that was that. Not that I think a six year old has any capabilities of making any good decisions regarding their future, it's just weird and unfortunate, that's all. The biological family was out of the picture. The foster family had no say. Apparently we were the "chosen" family, but truth be known, I don't believe there was anyone else.....
My belief is that GOD was ultimately in control of the moves and transitions of these two helpless beings. Our family was plan B, though. Plan A with their biological family failed them.
Just how far they have come in three years is hard to explain. How far they will go to reach their best potential is even harder to say. I've seen some glimpses of what that might look like recently and it's exciting and gives us courage to work on. There's always a little of that 2 steps forward, 3 steps back stuff to contend with to be sure. There undoubtedly will be struggles throughout their lives due to those that failed them in so many ways. I do see they have great potential, particularly if they allow the Lord to over-rule in their hearts.
Many blessings have come to us in these last three years through the twins. God has been faithful. He's given us more than we could ever ask or think. We can only be grateful.
