There is hope

Today I am linking to Amy's site in hopes to be of some encouragement.  Please go over and read the stories of hope.  Maybe add one for yourself!

I know that it is easy for me to say because our happy ending came a little quicker than most.  There is hope.

After a year of trying to conceive, Artie and I were told by doctors that we would not have children on our own.  So we prayed about which direction to take, adoption or IVF.  We felt we were called to adopt and started the process.  We lost 2 adoptions last fall that broke our hearts.  We picked up the pieces and prayed "Ok God.  Those were not our children but please show us our child soon. "  (Isn't funny how we are so demanding sometimes!)   Last fall, I started talking to my hair stylist about our adoption journey and asking for prayers.  Little did we know that she would lead us to our son Grayson.  In January we received a call that our stylist had told someone our story and they wanted us to adopt their baby.

There is hope.  God is working even if we do not see it.  He is there, weaving the threads of our story together.

Yes He is! I've always said that God calls us to be still and know He is God...but that doesn't mean He is still! He is actively working out His plan for us!!!
