The last 76 days

Melissa Fischer

We're back!!!!!!

I can’t believe that it’s been almost THREE months {76 days to be exact} since I posted on the blog sharing the arrival of our sweet Esme Yvette Elizabeth. It has been an exhausting, amazing, breath-taking blur. Where have those days gone? What have we been doing? Why has it been so long since I’ve been on this blog?

Well, to put it simply, we’ve just been surviving. Don’t get me wrong, there has been bliss + laughter + joy + amazement all magically interwoven into our days {and nights}, but to sum it up, we have been surviving.

Packing our suitcases

Melissa Fischer

I can’t believe this week has come! Over the course of the last 10 months, and especially the last two, there have been moments that I have felt like we would never get here. I didn’t think I could do it. It was too hard. But over the course of this entire process God has been so faithful to me. Whenever I have felt like it was just too much, He was there. He gave me just the right dose of encouragement. A random note or text from a friend, an unexpected donation to our fundraising page, a worship song that put into words what I could not, a lesson through my BSF study that was exactly what I needed to read. Every time, He was there.

I could not be more thankful for what I have learned on this journey so far. I believe that when things and circumstances are beyond our control and what we can “do” for ourselves, we experience God in an entirely new way. That has been this journey for us. He has taken our “Yes, Lord” and done all of the rest. Every question and obstacle we have faced, He has answered and overcome. Every time I have said, “Lord, I can’t… we can’t…” He has said, “But my Melissa, I can.” His love, care, faithfulness and tenderness with me throughout this entire process has been one of the sweetest seasons of knowing and experiencing my God that I have had in my entire life.

And now we are here. Tomorrow is December 1st. Tomorrow starts the month in which we will meet our newest daughter. All of the worry, the fear, the exhaustion, the work, the fundraising, the tears, the frustration, and the rest of the hard parts of this journey to get to her will wash away with the first look at her sweet face. And that moment is so close. I really can’t believe it.
