There’s Always A Reason…..

Bryan kept telling me there was a reason that we recently suffered a miscarriage…

Not that whole “there was something ‘wrong’ with the baby” sort of reason…..

Just that God had a plan for us…

Can I admit that at the time, I could not even fathom the reason?

I knew that God loved me but I could not even begin to understand why He would let us experience the elation of finding out we were expecting, only to take it away from us and replace it with grief and pain.

Knowing that God loved me was the only thing that made me not turn into a complete mess…

I knew all things would be made perfect in His timing…

I knew that my little one was being held in the arms of Jesus until Bryan and I can get there…

Still didn’t make the pain go away.

Fast forward to our decision to pursue adopting MinLan…

I didn’t know any of the requirements of adopting from China…

I just knew that was our girl…

Then I started to read…”no children under the age of one”…

Hmmmm…Neely was set to turn one very soon, so I knew that would not be an issue…but what about our OTHER little one?

Had I been expecting, I would have had to answer the question above very differently…

God had a plan…..joy truly does come in the morning….

MinLan is our morning that replaces our mourning….

Thank you God for the joy, however brief, of knowing we were expecting…

Thank you God for knowing that MinLan was waiting on us…that she needs us just as we need her…

Thank you God for working all things together for good in our lives…

Until next time,
