We are excited about it.
With all the blessings we pray for this to be, we know it will bring hard things, too.
If you want to learn about adoption in a nutshell,
read this really excellent post at Rage Against the Minivan.
I've been meaning to share it with you all.
It is a great summary. It made me think a lot.
It reminded me that along with so many blessings in life,
come hard things.
What about the hard things like
pregnancy, labor, mothering a newborn
& then parenting every day ever after?
Those are all really hard things.
And, I am so glad we decided to do those hard things.
I can't imagine missing out on the blessing of my children.
My marriage is my greatest earthly blessing.
But, marriage is not just a walk in the park.
It is hard work, sacrifice & selflessness.
And, the blessing is oh-so-sweet.
There are other hard things that bare big fruits of blessings.
My sister knows about the blessings that come from
working crazy hard to get your body in shape &
from the hard sacrificing of many tasty foodie treats.
If we were to avoid hard things & try to take the easy road,
can you even imagine how much we would miss?
What else? What hard things have you reaped great blessing from?
