“…once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act.”
~Proverbs 24:12

New Friends, Continued Blessings

I just continue to be amazed at the blessings our Lord has poured upon us! While the adoption process is not for the faint of heartas it can be a difficult and frustrating roadGod has blessed us with such amazing supporters. There is no doubt that He has used our friends and family as vehicles for sharing His love.

This past week I had the honor of being invited to a local adoptive families group. I say "honor" because it truly was so wonderful being among bright and sincere women who have either already experienced the blessing of adoption or are right in the thick of the process, as we are. There is so much for me to learn from these women and so much to share. I can't wait!

The friends and family the Lord has blessed me with to this point have just blown me away. Truth be told, I was never one to have a bunch of good, genuine friends growing up. The love you all have shown me and Derek, particularly during this process, has been almost overwhelming. Words can't express how grateful I am of all of your support. We are so blessed to be able to share this journey with such amazing people. And our children will be all the more blessed to have you in their lives.

I'd say I can't wait for you all to meet them, but I can't wait to meet them myself! A little over a week!!!
