  1. I just want to say thank you! I can’t wait to start following your blog as well. I just read your article at Growing Home. My husband and I are adopting now. But we too are parents of babies in heaven! Our sweet Miranda Lyn was taken in a car accident. And Briley Jordyn left my womb at 18 weeks gestation due to trauma to my stomach. Due to all the scarring we’ve miscarried 2 more than following. Our hearts were broken. All along from the day we got married our heart was pulled toward adoption but we we able to conceive on our own immediately so we pushed it off. And then again and again. We kept pushing it off because we didnt understand why adoption when biologically we were being blessed tremendously. Unfortunately it took a serious chain of tragedy for us to really wake up and say “Okay God, we understand and YES we will follow you!” We just finished our homestudy about 2 weeks ago and are anxiously waiting for a child our hearts already long for and love in so many ways!!! You touched on a lil’ bit of everything in our life!! May God bless you and your growing family!

    • Oh Valerie…my heart is aching for you. I’m so sorry.

      Words on a screen just seem so weak and worthless…but please know I read this comment earlier today…and thought about you and your husband and your girls many times this afternoon. So much hurting in what you shared above.

      I’m so thankful that you and your husband didn’t push God away (as if that’s really even possible) but turned to Him…gave yourselves to His nudge towards adoption.

      I love that you are on this path and pray now that it will bring incredible joy and that He will be glorified through the process.

      The quote below means a lot to me (as I know it feels scary sometimes to risk loving another little one after experiencing such deep heartache).
      My prayer for you is that He will bless you with a season of “joy that comes in the morning” after such weeping (Psalm 30:5).

      I am so thankful you stopped by and introduced yourself and thank you for sharing your story. Love, Kara

      “To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly be broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket – safe, dark, motionless, airless – it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable.”
      ~C.S. Lewis
