We have learned many things over the last year. First and foremost, God's will may take you places you never expected and may make twists and turns that test your faith and forge you into something greater. Among the negativity and lost friendships, new friendships and hope can spring forth. I pray that though our adoption could not proceed, God continues to show us how He is working in these children's lives, and that we are able to continue to be some small part of God's plan.
For those that still occasionally follow this page, thank you for your support through it all. I am planning on taking it in a different direction. I am working on expanding it and sharing many aspects of my life. I hope that I can help others by sharing my experiences with adoption, but also in homeschooling, nursing, travel, running, gardening, and even the stories of chickens and children! My life has already been so blessed and so full. Please check back in from time to time and join in the tears, joy, and hilarity of it all.
