This time last year I was trying to figure out who would do our homestudy. What would it involve? Would we "pass"? Where would the money come from? How would I ever get all of the paperwork gathered?
It has been a year filled with an abundance of joy & tears. Never before has God been so evident to me. I have made friends with virtual strangers who I now hold dear. I have been grown & stretched in ways I couldn't have imagined. My heart has been changed. I long to do more...to be more.
I do not know what the future holds or have all of the answers. Contemplating the "what ifs" of a Haitian adoption has the potential to consume me . The only sure thing I have in all of this chosen madness is to cling to my Father. He is at the very center of it all and it is His love that sustains me.
Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.
