What a Feeling...

Wow!! It has been almost two weeks since my last post on this blog!!!I guess I just haven't had any news on our journey to parenthood that was blog worthy.

I must admit though that I have had an overwhelming sense of peace as to where we are in this journey. I have truly given my desires over to God and feel comfortable knowing that He will direct our steps and has the BEST plan already set in motion for us.

"Great peace have those who love your law; nothing can make them stumble."~Psalm 119:165

I have never been in a place where I am so at peace before. I KNOW that I am at peace because I have so many friends and blog friends that are pregnant and/or adopting soon. Before, I would have been jealous, upset, or feeling sorry for myself because they all have what I want to have...a baby. But instead, I feel happy, excited for them, and looking forward to seeing how this new baby changes their lives for the better. Without God's peace, I NEVER would have felt this way before.

"You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you."~Isaiah 26:3

I was so excited to finally have our Home Study official a few weeks ago and have been praying and asking God to let us know where we should go from here. Should we look for agencies to help us find a baby? Should we just wait and hope that a birthmother contacts us? We still have not given up on trying to have a biological child.

"I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”~John 16:33

Peace, my friends, PEACE...what a feeling!

I so agree with you. I went a long time without peace through our IF journey. I feel I am at a point of peace as well. It feels so good. There are no words to describe the feeling it brings. I feel free. That is probably the best way to describe it. You are in my prayers, Leanna.

I've been experiencing the same feeling. A lot of my friends and family are getting pregnant (adoption is not a common thing down in Brazil), but I am plain happy for them. I am still healing from my miscarriage but I am at peace with all that happened.

I am happy for you!!!
