7 Months

It has been 7 months today since we "officially" started our journey of adoption.  Today is bittersweet, its exciting because this journey has been a blessing in disguise... but its also exhausting because of all of the unknowns.  We don't know when, therefore, we can't plan and prepare.  We don't know gender, therefore I can't buy all the cute little things I always seem to see on sale!  (haha)  But in all seriousness, this is a milestone for us.  I am happy to be where we are.  I am blessed.  Blessed to have the support of our family and friends.  Blessed to know that this is all in His hands, and not my own.  I am blessed to have a wonderful, supportive husband who is patient and kind when I have my emotional breakdowns. 

So... today at 7 Months... I am thankful.  Some days are hard, very hard, but nonetheless, I'm blessed!

Also... I wanted to share this video with you.  My friend Lauren, had it posted on her blog.  I asked if I could post it on mine too... she said of course!  So.. here you go!  [I will warn you... it brought me to tears]!

Until then... Brantley

you are so blessed - we all are! BUT adoption is so hard and there are many bumps and bruises acquired along the way. I think you handle everything with such grace and it's a testimony to me! I am praying for you!

PS- you can definitely share that video on your blog! :)

I can understand your feelings. I have just officially started the adoption process last month. It is definitely a difficult but rewarding process. I am enjoying reading your blog and would love to talk with you.
