Without intentionality, we pressed on. While our hearts were mending God took over like we asked. We began to take baby steps forward in our adoption process that turned out to be big strides and huge leaps. I knew in my heart our baby was close because I had no strength to accomplish in the home study and fundraising what got done in the month after our miscarriage. I look back at that time and know while I was on my knees in mourning, God was doing the work that needed to be done.
And then our home study was done. What should have taken half a year took us 3 short months and we stood in awe of God’s favor over us. Us being done with the home study meant it was time to search for the birth family that cared for our child. Out there somewhere was a growing belly that carried the rest of our lives. God got us ready to meet that sweet woman. We stood again at the beginning of something big and our hearts were so ready.
