Hope in the Night (part 1)

Hope in the Night (part 1)

We did not understand what God was doing and honestly to this day I don’t understand the reason it all happened, BUT we had to trust God was in control.  And truly when I look back at it all…from our sorrow new joy did spring, out of sin grace did lift its voice, in our complete weakness HE gave us strength to fight, and so, there was hope in the night.

Baby Mama Drama, a personal heart journey through infertility and adoption

Baby Mama Drama, a personal heart journey through infertility and adoption

We did all the research you can imagine on agencies, countries, fees, timelines, and more. But when it came down to it, we decided on an international adoption for one main (and very profound) reason: we didn’t want any baby mama drama.

That’s right. Judge me if you like. The main reason we chose to adopt internationally was because we felt that adopting domestically might open the door for a baby’s mom to come “back” into our child’s life and mess up the good thing we had goin’ on.  Baby mama drama, as Wes called it. No, thank you. 
I know.  Totally lame and shallow reason.  That’s why I’m writing this blog about it, 7 years later.
