Sometimes things happen and the whole thing feels directed by God.
A coincidence that is so unlikely. A possibility so beautiful, only God could have orchestrated.
We had a week filled with sudden adoption talks. Possibilities that only God could imagine. I prayed. And prayed.
As the week carried on, and we waited, my heart changed. My prayers changed.
“Please let this be… “ turned into “Whatever you need.”
Because, friends, I saw a mother who was afraid and a family who was hurting. My prayers changed when I realized it wasn’t just about me. It wasn’t just about my family. It was about what is best for both of our families.
Adoption was not the best decision for their family. We met, we talked, we prayed, and waited… and God whispered through the silence.
This was a possibility so beautiful only God could orchestrate. It didn't end with a baby in my arms, but big changes are working in me, that only this situation would do. I am leaning-in more deeply to God’s plans and giving in to grace.
