I feel impressed to start sharing about our road to adoption. This is difficult for me, as I still battle allowing myself to dream and believe. What if I get my hopes up and it doesn't happen?
But, then I am convicted. Shouldn't our hope always be up as Christians?
Why would there be such a strong desire in my heart to adopt if I wasn't supposed to? Why would my husband be totally open to it if we aren't to do something with that?
This is a desire in my heart that I have carried for 13 years!
This entire issue is so precious and personal and intimate to me that it is hard to lay it out there and share it.
If you know me, you know I am pretty open about all things. I see no good come out of living a fake life, avoiding transparency in relationship, or keeping on a mask that isolates us from one another.
But, when it comes to this I struggle putting my dream out before the world.
Nevertheless, not my will be done, but God's. I feel the nudge that it is time, and so in the days to come, as He enables me to release my treasured dream, I will share how this is unfolding.
