Moving Forward

Yesterday as I was driving in my car I heard a song by Steven Curtis Chapman called "Cinderella." I don't like/dislike the song honestly, but I think it's a beautiful song from a father to his daughter (if you don't know the story, you should check it out). I was singing along and automatically had thoughts of the baby girl Jamee and I thought we were going to adopt, so I turned the radio to another station. I am not "ignoring" these thoughts but I honestly just couldn't listen to the song at that moment.

As I was praying this morning I prayed for this child and thanked God for the healing He has brought to Jamee and I. I prayed that God would provide for her in a way that honors Him best. We truly have made good progress as far as moving forward. Only with His strength and the loving support of family/friends are we able to do this!

Keep praying for us---we are in touch with some companies about grants/non-interest loans to afford adoption. God continues to provide for us financially, spiritually, emotionally, etc... He cares about every part of who we are...we are living proof. I know deep in my soul that the day will come when we become parents and when it happens, we will be able to look back over what we have gone through and be in awe of how God has guided us throughout this journey. Until next time...

It's amazing how music can move and touch us sometimes; put into words things that we thought couldn't be. I have the experience all the time. I know that one day, you will be able to look back and see how everything had to fall into place just this way in order for you to be united with your little baby. I will be lifting you all up in prayer.
