#1. Everything happens for a reason.
#2. Trust in the Lord with all of your heart, and lean not on your own understanding.
When there is something that you truly want with all of your heart, we as humans tend to create a perfect path or perfect light to look at a circumstance. We were close. We were getting ready to send off the final paperwork and were weeks away from completing appointments to start the transfer for our surrogacy. God had a different plan. In those moments I was confused and angry, we had done everything right, we had put the leg work in and then everything collapsed. It hit hard, again it was something that we really wanted. I prayed and I cried and I prayed and I cried. And then guess what happened. God answered. He answered clearly and quickly. We are now starting our surrogacy journey with a sweet family who I have known my entire life. It is such a blessing that not only we have their friendship but that they are willing to provide the ultimate gift for us!
We have been beyond busy but I will be documenting this journey as best we can. My number one resource when I have questions or concerns is a few other families blogs who have gone through this process. So I do hope in some way we can help another family. We appreciate prayers and support as we continue on and hope for our sweet little baby!
