My Diagnosis

We tried to get pregnant for 4 1/2 years before we began the adoption process.  No diagnosis was ever determined for me. I remember thinking that, in some ways, it would have been nice informative to have an answer to why we were not getting pregnant.  That way we could either have closure or fix the problem.

Now I know my diagnosis.  It's called, "God-had-other-plans-that-are-better-than-mine."  His plan far exceeded my expectations.

Pretend that there is a sweet picture of our little boy right here...  My computer has crashed and I can't figure out Wes' mac {not a fan by the way}.

As we are beginning our second adoption, I find myself reverting back to my old ways and forgetting that His ways are best.

When will I learn?  Probably never.  It's a constant battle with me, but I am so thankful for God's grace and patience.

Today, I'm asking you to pray for all of the couples that are in the adoption process right now.

Here are some things you can pray for.

*As my friend Abby put it...that each couple would RIP {rest in peace}as we wait to see how God's plan unfolds?  Isn't she so cleaver?

*That God would remove the financial burden from each couple.  God will provide!

* The adjustment of a new life joining the family.

* Wisdom for any decisions that need to be made during the adoption process.

* Patience for the waiting.

* That each couple would let go of the control and release their longing and desires to the Lord.

Thanks for praying!
