We LOVED Nashville!!! I can’t wait to go back and take Jon. I love country music and it was awesome hearing all the live bands and visiting the Country Music Hall of Fame & Grand Ole Opery Hotel.
And for everyone wondering about my big visit….
I met my biological family for the first time this weekend. Mama & I drove up and met my twin brothers and their wives and kids, my little sister, and my biological mom.
I was pretty nervous/anxious/excited….turns out everyone was. I’m so thankful I had all my prayer warriors lifting us up.
Honestly, I couldn’t have asked for anything to go better. Words can’t even explain. It was PHENOMENAL. I felt an instant connection with my siblings- loved them!! I loved their families too. It makes me super excited about the future and I really feel like our journey has just begun.
Like I said, I am SO thankful for all the prayers for the weekend. I feel like everyone’s hearts were ready and we all felt so much peace. It was very natural and comfortable. We all talked a lot, shared stories, memories, and got to know each other better. We all talked about how we all felt about me being adopted.
I have no doubt we were all covered in prayer and the Lord was all in that meeting. Everything went super smooth and it was an incredibly positive experience for all of us.
My favorite part was meeting my (twin) brothers and sister and seeing all of our similarities…I’ve never seen anyone who looked like or acted like me, so that was so neat.
I plan on writing more when I share my whole adoption story, but I did want to share some pictures…
