Ally Kat Is Going Home ...

The emotions are high tonight as we prepare for Ally Kat to meet her forever family tomorrow ... Please pray for Ally, her new family, her birth mother, and the Oatsvall Team ... We are honored to be the family that was able to love on her for the past 3 1/2 weeks ... God has shown us yet another glimpse of His heart ... I just know walking into that room tomorrow will be an experience I will never forget as I hand her over to her MOMMY...

Giving your life away for the Lord is never easy, but it is the best emotion, action, and experience we can have on this earth ... Thanks for all your prayers ...

Gwen,
This must be tough to do yet, rewarding, too! Ally Kat is surely blessed to have had your love, prayers and comfort for the past few weeks. She is blessed to finally have her forever family, too. I will be praying for all of you. I pray for peace for you, too!
Hugs,

Lots of hugs and prayers as you place this sweet baby in her momma's arms. Though I know you know it already...You've been her momma and God's arms holding her until then.

Nothing better in this world than for Ally girl to have a family!!! The bits of your Team's heart she will take with her will allow her to one day be able to share her precious heart too!!! She is LOVED:) Nothing better!!!

Well done Oatsvall Team.

The word "bittersweet" seems appropriate.

Know that you and your family will be in my prayers tommorow as you hand over that precious child to her forever family. You have been obedient Gwen and you have played a huge part in this child's life. God is stretching your sweet heart to make room for your two children from Ethiopia. He is preparing you.
Love,
Adele

I'll be thinking of you tomorrow...call me as soon as your done...AND, call me with the name and # for the family wanting that baby we talked about....AND, look at your girls pic on my post about JJ's b-day party ...kj

What a blessing you are, not only to little Ally, but also to her birth mother, and her FOREVER mommy (and family). My cousin stayed with a foster family for 3 days (yes, only 3 days!) before she was placed with my aunt and ucle and they still (25 years later) talk about what a blessing that family was for loving little Jennifer until they could. You have had Ally much longer, and thus you have given her much more love! Thank you! I will be praying for you all!
Blessings-Andie

Are you kidding me??? You get to see her mommy's face as you hand her baby to her??? What a priceless gift! Praying for you as you hand her over and for her new mommy to know how well loved her little girl has been by a faithful servant of our Lord! :)

You define inspiration.
Praying for you ALL!

I can olny imagine the emotions running through you and your family today. How wonderful Ally has a family now, and how blessed is she to have you to care for her so well and lovingly that last few weeks.
God bless you.

Kristi said...

May there be sweet treasures in your box dear friend, knowing you and your precious family have made a significant impact on the life of a precious child. Hugs and blessing.

Kelly said...

Gwen--you touched all of us who were in that room as you sat with the new mom and helped her know how to love her little girl as you have. You are a true reflection of God's love for his children. Thank you doesn't cover it...but I hope we'll have the chance at a repeat performance.
Hugs to you and the whole family :-)

Rachelle said...

Wow, just like Gotcha Day, only you are on the other side. What an interesting perspective you have been given.

Kelly said...

You are amazing in all ways of the word. What a blessed little girl, and forever family.
