I remember Mother's Day two years ago. I had just lost the baby we were so excited to be having and I was so numb I couldn't feel a thing. Two years later and still no baby running through the house, but very much at peace with where God has me. I look forward to the day when we are able to see our little girl's face for the first time and we get to celebrate many holidays together. A dear friend I have met over the internet sent me an email today asking how things were going. She said the adoption journey is not for the faint of heart. Boy, is she right. But when you are called, you'll have it no other way. Adoption is burning in my heart and there is no way I'm turning back unless God shuts the door completely. I have no idea where this road is leading us. I seriously thought we would be waiting for our LOA by now. But God has seen to shake things up a bit and have us wait. The one thing I hate to do. But knowing where are exactly where He wants us makes it a little bit easier. What a wonderful Daddy He is. Protecting us from things we can't see...making sure we get the child He wants for us. It's simple, but so hard at times. But not impossible. With Him.
