We have known for several years that it would be virtually impossible for us to have a family naturally. It wasnt until this past May that we heard the Lord telling us which way to go. Since starting the adoption process, God talks to me all the time, guiding me on what to do next, when to slow down, and when to speed up. We pray for our future birth mother every day. We also pray for all birth mothers choosing an adoption plan, choosing life!
