"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

Ask and ye shall receive.

I spent much of last evening in prayer asking God to give me affirmation as to what I'm doing. Is it what He wants? Am I following His will in doing what my heart believes is best for my child? I usually don't ask God for signs since I try so hard to walk by faith. But, last night. I did. I told Him that I needed to know that I was doing the right thing pertaining to Anna Grace.

This morning, Scott and I had a late breakfast and I put the kids down for an early nap. Then, I began to do something that I rarely do because a) I'm usually not interested and b) I don't have the time. But anyways, I started surfing blogging sites, not related to adoption. The 2nd site I open (that had nothing to do with adoption), this picture is the first thing I see.

THANK YOU, JESUS!!!! That was all that I needed.

This just knocks my socks off! What a wonderful GOD we serve! Don't be so hard on yourself - asking GOD to provide a sign sometimes. He loves you and he loves Anna and wants to affirm your heart!
Blessings,

I just caught up on the last few posts and I wanted to say how much I appreciate your honesty and how much you share your feelings and life with us. Before we went to China, I followed so many blogs and journeys, never once reading anything that wasn't happy! Sure I knew people only share the best moments but I was so unprepared with how I felt those first few months home. Although before going to China, I would have read a blog like yours and thought that would never be me, but after coming home and experiencing it, had I read a blog like this it would have been so helpful. I felt so alone those first months home, but had I known others experience some of the same thoughts and feelings it would have been very comforting. I think what you are doing is a great service to the adoption community. People need to know that many adoptions are not easy but the blessings that come from them are unmeasureable.
