We wouldn't have wanted any other baby besides Max. He is perfect for us. If the first birthmom would have chosen us, we wouldn't have Max.
If the second birthmom would have been the real deal, we wouldn't have Max.
God's timing is so perfect. Here is another example of God's perfect timing. I hope you read this.
It's easy to rejoice in God's Sovereign plan for your family when you are looking back at what He has already done, but it's not the easiest when you are in the moments of wanting something so bad. I'm constantly trying to put the control back into my own hands even when I know He is 100% faithful. He loves us so much and desires to show His power through our weakness. In Isaiah 37:20, King Hezekiah is praying to God to save Jerusalem from the threatening and powerful King of Assyria. "Now, O Lord our God, deliver us from his hand, so that all kingdoms on earth may know that you alone, O Lord, are God." I want to encourage you to have this same type of prayer. He may not deliver you from the situation, but he will deliver you into a peace beyond your comprehension if you trust Him.
