it’s been a year

Hello lovely people. I hope everyone is enjoying this foggy and rainy day as much as we are. We are currently snuggled up on the couch sipping some coffee, of course! What else would y’all expect of us? I think we need an intervention, like asap. Baby B is going to be able to french press coffee by his or her 1st birthday. Ha! Not really, I joke. But for real though 🙂

Speaking of Baby B, we are just praying and praying that he or she is safe and getting everything needed to stay healthy and happy in our birthmother’s belly. Our birthmother’s belly is being prayed over even if she isn’t even with child yet. How amazing that our Father knows which belly our baby will be in/is in? I am just in awe. I began to cry earlier today just in awe of how taken care of I am. My Father says I am the apple of His eye and I feel that. Literally. He is making sure I know how loved and cared for I am on a daily basis. That is just too much for me for me to comprehend some days, so I just cry. I cry when I am happy, sad, upset, and confused. I have needed these reminders more these last few weeks than ever before.

I think one of the reasons why I’ve needed these prayers is because on Monday, we will have our home study update meeting with our social worker. This means that it’s officially been a year of waiting for us and it also means that we have to get physicals again, pay a fee, and fill out more paperwork. In all honesty, I thought we wouldn’t still be waiting. I didn’t think we would get to this point, but here we are. It’s a pretty humbling to know again that my plans didn’t work out like I planned them. You would think that I just wouldn’t have expectations anymore; however, I do. I have plenty actually. I don’t think I’ll ever quit either. I think it’s about the submission of those plans. Nothing wrong with *having* them, but it’s how tightly you are holding onto them that really determines are difficult the road will be. 

If you are thinking of us, please say a quick prayer for us. Please pray for wisdom as we continue to prepare for our baby. Please pray for our birthmother and definitely for that little precious life that we one day be placed in our arms.


Super grateful for each of you — have a blessed Saturday!

  1. I can’t believe that you are still waiting as well! I pray every day that you will get to hold your baby in your arms soon! Whoever the couple is that chooses you and your husband will be the SMARTEST people. There is no better couple to trust a child with. This baby will be loved more than anything. I will continue to pray for you every day.

  2. Saying a prayer for you now!

  3. Can’t wait either girl!!!!
