If you saw my IG stories from Monday evening, I shared some unsettling news. It took everything in me to not completely lose it but I couldn’t help but cry when I shared that with you all. After I posted it, I didn’t know if sharing that with you guys was the right thing to do. For one, I want my space to be a positive place and the last thing I want to do is make you all anything but happy when you read my posts or watch my stories. Secondly, I didn’t want to deter anyone considering adoption because of what I had shared.
I got a whole 2 hours of sleep that night but when I woke up I had so many messages from you guys, sending us prayers and telling me all the positive and uplifting things. Right then, I knew sharing our story was the right thing to do. I love you guys so much and I think what we needed to hear more than ever this week is that “God always does what is right”. I know that God is looking out for us and our sweet baby. We went through some trying times to get where we are today. There is a reason for everything that happens. Our human minds don’t always understand it but God always provides. When we found out that conceiving a child together would be extremely difficult that was a trying time but guess what? God provided. He provided us strength, patience and love. Then before we knew it he provided us with a child. A child that was oh so much more perfect than we could have ever imagined.
I’m not sure why this bump in the road is happening but soon enough we will find out the reason. I know at the end of this, it will all be right. Worrying and stress will only take away from the fun, carefree time with our sweet son so worrying and stressing is something we are trying not to do.
I want to thank each and everyone of you who reached out. You don’t know how much that means to us. People that messaged us that we have never met in person.The fact that you took time out of your day to write, text or call. Telling me that you are praying for us, that you would have your bible study group pray for us and I even had a co worker who told me that their parents were heading to church that morning and that we were on top of their prayer requests. Another co worker told me that she was calling her sister because her sister was more active in the church than she was and she wanted her sister to pray for us.
My heart could burst because I am so appreciative of each one of you. You guys remind me that there are so many good people in the world. People of all different faiths telling us they are praying for us. God always provides.
I love you guys so much. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts….
