Awesome Weekend!

Wow...Sometimes you have to take a moment, sit down, and just realize what all has happened in a weekend. Sometimes it's not the big plans, big happenings that leave you in amazement. Sometimes it's just the simple conversations. The relationships.

It's been almost a year (November 14th) that I posted about my Jesus moment and adoption (you can click here to read).

We've had alot of changes in our life (Mike loosing his job, me staying in the workforce at a stressful job, etc). We've both gotten a year older! (Tick, Tock - bio. clock ticking!)

This weekend God still is confirming to us that we will have children and I truly believe him. I still don't know when or how but I know without any doubt that we will be parents.

Saturday night at our small group (not even sure how we got on the subject) but a really good friend of ours asked us if we ever thought about having a surrogate mother. I think it kindof floored her husband at first, because he started questioning who did she have in mind. When she said herself, because she loved being pregant, I just sat there in awe. They have three beautiful children and we love the folks so much. The fact that she thought of us and would do this for us is just amazing. I've never thought about this possiblity but the fact that she would offer. She is so awesome. In the past, I've told my husband (when we were planning on taking me out of the workforce) that I wanted to spend time with her and the kids because I thought I could learn so much from her. She is an awesome mother (and wife) and FRIEND!!! I'm still amazed that she would offer.

Then today at our church's open house, a couple that we had met about two years ago, stopped to talk to us. She told me that she had read my blog and that she wanted to let us know that her three children were adopted. WOW! I didn't know that. They started out as foster parents for the children and when possible adopted them. Wow...fostering...that's another thing that I haven't thought of. I immediately came home and jumped on our county's website and read about requirements for fostering.

Wow....What can I say about our Heavenly Father....but wow!

I don't know how we will end up being parents, nor do I know when. But I do know and trust God. And I know that this is something He has planned for us.

We will coninue to pray and to just listen to God. He is awesome!

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Keep the faith and stay strong. I promise the long road will be worth it the first time you hold that beautiful child in your arms. There is nothing - nothing - like being a mommy! I'll keep you in my prayers.

In the mean time - if you ever need to borrow a rambunctious 5 year old and an 8 year old who dances & sings constantly, just give a call! :)
