Lilypie - Memorial

We have a meeting set up on Tuesday afternoon with a mom who is due in August. She'll be meeting with 2 families whose profiles she liked, and then making her decisions from there.

I was at a point a few nights ago of wanting to put all the baby stuff away in the basement where I couldn't see it anymore. I decided that night that I would resign myself to never having kids, and just live vicariously through friends, and enjoy my students and the kiddos at church. By morning, I was a little calmer, and God gave me sweet rest that night - I remembered that it's a year of HOPE. As I told a friend a while ago, if I can remember these three things - God loves me, God has a plan, and He works for my good - then I don't get discouraged. God has been so faithful through this whole process.

Anyway, please pray. Not just that our meeting will go well, but that this mom will make the right decision for her baby. Whether or not that's us. Of course, we'd love for it to be us, but most of all, we want the best for the baby.

Sweetheart, I love you and you know I am praying every morning for you and Chris. You are such a wise woman in the Lord and I am so proud of you. I couldn't want a better daughter.

My heart did a leap inside me to see the words "adoption update"! I will certainly pray about this new little one and the family God wants for him/her. What an exciting time!
Love, Deb

Your strength of character is a real testiment to your commitment to God's plans. He knows you how you feel and he knows how best to fill that void. Our Lord has a child hand-picked just for the two of you. I will continue to pray for God's guidance and love.
