Where We Are

So, after all that's happened, where are we in the process of having a family? I still don't exactly know. I am more hopeful now than I ever have been that God is going to give us a child, but I just don't know how He's gonna do it. We've decided to continue in the process of adoption. God has given us a heart for adoption and we feel like it's what He wants us to do for now. God may choose to bless us with another pregnancy (and we welcome that and would totally rejoice over it!!!) but at this point, I just feel like we need to continue on the path that we were on before. Lifeline has been so good to work with us and I cannot say enough good things about them. There have been times when I questioned whether or not we were doing the right thing by narrowing our options down to just them. But over and over again, as we have researched other alternatives, our hearts have only been at peace with Lifeline. And I've recently been reminded that it's only because of God's plan that we don't have children yet, not because we didn't use another agency. So I ask that you all be in prayer for us... whether God chooses to bless us through a pregnancy or through an adoption, we only want His plan, His best for us. Someone shared with me recently a quote that I really like. "Sometimes we have to praise God on credit!" I'm praising God now for how He will create our family! I trust it will be amazing!

On a side note, I'm employed again! I'm gonna be back at Bright Beginnings teaching 4-year-olds. I'm so excited about it and very thankful that God worked it out for me to be there! I start on Monday. :)
