Be still my heart...

Our sweet Madelyn turned 8 years old on Friday the 25th. We sent her a cake and her care package should get there very soon. I can't believe how much older she is starting to look in just a few short months. I can't wait to have her in my arms. We were really praying to be DTC by now but unfortunately we are not.

I am struggling. I can't go into details at this time however, we are needing prayers. I promise to post about this when we are finally DTC but until then if you think of us, please pray. I will keep you posted.

God gave us several signs today reminding us HE's in control and His will will be done. I'm trying to be positive and I don't want to let him down because I promised him five months ago that if we received our PA that I would not question or lose faith no matter what! Believe me, I'm trying...I'm really trying.

It was such a sweet blessing to get these photos of our precious daughter. Her smile always brings tears to my eyes because I yearn for her to be home with her family. We're smitten!

Oh, what a DOLL she is!!! And what a mighty big cake that is, too :)
I am so sorry to hear things are not going as planned... I can imagine seeing her beautiful face is bittersweet knowing you'll have to wait a bit longer :(
Praying for you all!!!

Oh Amy~ Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. We are waiting to be DTC yet, too...and it's SO hard! We had hoped to be long ago, but have had some 'tie-ups' along the road. But like you, I continue to trust and wait upon the Lord, knowing He will bring us to our Khloe in HIS perfect timing. Easier said than done, I know...but I have to have faith!! God is faithful, and He will see BOTH of us through!!! <><

Sending big HUGS and prayers your way!

Oh my gosh, she is simply darling. I was so hoping we would be DTC around the same time, but I will be praying that you are not far behind us.

Keep the faith and He will make it all happen.

Amy, I'm moved to pray for you and your family and sweet Madilyn. I can't get over how much her hands and arms look like Sara, even her fingers, almost identical. You all will be lifted up before the Prince of Peace.
