At the garage sale so many people were so encouraging about our adoption process. I met people who had adopted and others who knew the pain of not being able to get pregnant. But mostly we felt so loved and blessed to know that all these people wanted to help us make this journey to our child.
Tonight, at a baby shower, I met someone who is using the same adoption agency. She and her husband just got picked by a birth mother and are expecting the baby in August. I know we have no guarantee of getting picked quickly and it could take more than a year. But just knowing that the Lord has a child just for us is comforting and is helping heal my broken heart.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
