My friend sent me a link to Hope: handmade a few weeks ago and suggested I read the author's story about their journey to parenthood. The author is named Stacey as well.
In February of this year, she and her husband experienced a failed adoption when a little boy they were in love with went back to his birth mom. Stacey writes from a place of brokenness and authenticity. She writes about choosing hope in the midst of heartache. Her latest post about how they came to their decision to adopt made me want to cheer.
So often we think (and write) from a place of trying to control how and when and where...Stacey has been there and she knows the joy and peace that comes with walking hand in hand with a God who loves her unconditionally and holds her heart tenderly.
If you are struggling to conceive, or considering adoption, or just want to read beautifully written words by a woman of faith who is seeking God in the midst of her waiting, take a peek at her blog. You'll be inspired and I'm sure you'll find yourself saying, "That's exactly how I feel."
Also, her online store goes toward supporting their adoption - so go do some shopping!!
