Coincidence?

The hubby and I have decided to renew our adoption homestudy. It has been a year already since our homestudy was finalized so I emailed our social worker to find out what paperwork we needed to submit to ensure everything was up to date.

After her response, I emailed her back asking her if she could recommend an agency that we should pursue. She responded with the website and a contact name for a local agency where many of her clients adopted this past year.

That very next weekend, my hubby helped out with an Open House at the marina where he works part-time. On the way home he told me about all the people he encountered that day.

He met a lady that had the cutest twins and he was commenting about how, after all these years of TTC, he would LOVE to have twins. The lady responded to my hubby telling him that that is exactly how she was blessed with her girls. She had an egg donor and one of the embryos split, creating the twins.

Later the hubby met another woman and they started talking about my job...that I am an assistant principal at a performing arts high school. She wanted to know more about my job and asked my hubby if I would be willing to contact her and maybe speak to some of the young girls where she works. The hubby took down her information and planned to share it with me when he got home.

That evening, I started a load of laundry and pulled out a piece of paper from my hubby's pocket. I was startled by what I read on the paper...

The lady that wanted me to speak to the girls works at the Adoption Agency that my social worker recommended we apply to.

Coincidence?

I don't think so.

If you are a follower of Christ, I don't think there are such a thing as coincidences. ; )

Have you ever heard the quote "Coincidence is simply God's way of remaining anonymous." Of course, He is never really anonymous...

I've read your blog for a long time but never commented. You are in my prayers!
