Baby clothes...

 Today I walked though aisles of blue and pink baby clothes and touched them all. I pictured sweet little babies in them. I imagined holding them in my arms and calling them mine. Tears filled my eyes and a dull ache my heart. (Who knew clothes could provoke such feelings? :)  And yet there was something painfully soothing about it. Call me crazy, but some days there is something healing about looking at adorable baby stuff and just reminding God of your desires. Letting him know that I am still here and I am still waiting. And just knowing that He loves me no matter what. He has a plan that is bigger and better than I can ever understand. And He is holding my hand the whole way. He is my comfort and my rock. I can't imagine going through this alone.
 In other news, last month was 6 years since Ben and I started dating. So crazy how fast time flies. I thank God for giving me such a great and gentle man to share life with. I could not have asked for a better companion and lover! 
 May God be with you all and bless you on your journey!

Spring? :)

We have been enjoying beautiful Spring like weather! I'm sure we will still get more snow before Spring is here to stay, but we have been soaking up the warmth.
Our river is open and flowing again. You can hear it in our house even with the windows closed. I love the sound. There is something soothing about it!

  On the adoption front, nothing new. Just saving and praying and thanking God for his provisions. If you could keep us in your prayers, we would greatly appreciate it.
