Yesterday at church, in between glazing over and thinking about baby, I caught something profound.
Q: Why is the how so important to God that the what is often delayed?
A: The how gets us to who He wants us to be.
We have lived the how and are still living it. Despite fighting the how, it does change us.
Measuring the How in our lives.
34 candles lit - one every Sunday - for her. For hope. In faith. With improving patience. That she is well and she will come safely to us someday.
14 ugly cries that took me from point A of panic, sadness, and despair to point B of improved understanding, clarity of mind, communication in my marriage, plans for the future.
4 ultrasounds and 6 rounds of Clomid. Several reality checks and reminders that life is a complete miracle, our bodies are fragile and children are beyond value no matter how they come to you.
1 husband moved from reluctanct to ready.
By any measure the How has changed both of us forever.
- Me. Us. She.
- J and I have been married for almost 15 years. We have shared many adventures and a lot of watershed moments. In 2009 I began blogging and in 2010 we adopted our daughter from Ethiopia. In March of 2012 we began the process to adopt a little boy from Haiti. This blog follows the many twists and turns on the road to our two children and beyond.
