Why "Beauty From Ashes"?
God is so faithful during times of trial and our struggle to become parents has been five years of lots of prayer. We've had our share of ups and downs and are now following God's call of becoming adoptive parents. Throughout our journey, we've been able to experience God's love and grace in ways we never imagined. God has grown us closer as a married couple and our trial will only make us better parents. God has already used and will continue to use our struggle for His glory and His purpose. We don't know what the end result will be but we're confident that God knows what our family will look like. The picture of us as strong, graceful oak trees is so accurate.
Over the next few weeks and months, we'll be posting more information about our adoption journey including where we're at with the process, specific prayer requests and information about an adoption fundraiser that dear friends of ours are planning for us. These friends are also contributors to the blog so look for posts from them.
More to come soon...
