Today is a little different. You see John (The Hubs) and I have been going through something pretty amazing over this past year and I want to be able to share in the joys, concerns and excitement with all of you.
Right around a year ago we were going through a tough time finding out that we were not going to be able to have biological children of our own. It was devastating and a very emotional time for both of us. We grieved and cried for that loss. We had so much support from our friends and family, but what ultimately got us through this tough time was our relationship with each other and our faith in God. He brought us both out of that grief and loss to a time of acceptance and so much more......
If you would have asked me a year ago if I would be willing to adopt "someone else's" baby, I would have said absolutely not, no way. But throughout this year my heart has been changed and I can't wait to have a sweet little one to love and become apart of our family.
We started the adoption process last March and as of right now we are not matched with a birth mother or baby. We have our final home study at the end of this month and then we will truly be waiting for "The Call". We are both so excited to be parents and know that God has a little being already picked out to belong to us. So many unknowns....but so many amazing blessings ahead.
I will leave you with the verse that got me through this year. Life may not have gone the way that I had originally thought when becoming a mama, but my desires will surely be filled when that baby is in my arms someday.
"Delight yourself in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart"
~ Psalm 37:4
