If I had gotten to choose, I would've been pregnant 2.5 years ago. My Ways
God had different plans.
Instead He made me wait and wait and wait....
And we said YES with open arms...
- to an orphan
- to our lives being turned upside down and rearranged
- to yearning to hug someone we've never even met
We rejoiced and you joined us in celebrating!
Now, for some reason...God has said enough waiting and opened my womb to grow and nurture a baby again. His ways.
And we rejoice again!
Now we find ourselves adopting AND pregnant! (Maybe that should be a new reality show title? No? Call me TLC! I'll let you fund our adoption 🙂 ) In all seriousness, we are ecstatic!
After the initial shock wore off, we realized that not much had changed for us. We are still adopting. God called us to adopt one of His children. We know that with every fiber of our being. We still say YES...with open arms! Thankfully, the adoption agency will let us continue with paperwork and let us pause when necessary.
And it's kind of fitting don't you think? That while a child grows within, a child grows in my heart. Double the love!
