A day doesn't go by that I don't look at my children in disbelief at the fact that God has entrusted these precious lives it us.
What sheer joy they bring to our lives. I think of my life before I had my babies and it seems like a distant dream. I went through many different seasons and I love looking back to see how everything in our lives in preparing us for the next step God has planned when we walk in faith following Him.
I experienced high school, college (Texas Aggies - WHOOP!), married life before kids, working full time on Capitol Hill, struggles with infertility, Pilates training, health issues, making the decision to adopt, etc. Each season was rife with its own unique anxiety, spiritual growth and joy. Without it all I would not be where I am or who I am today, and we would not have our Chinese babies. If I had tried to solve all my problems on my own who knows where I would. I am so thankful that in my acknowledgement of my weakness, He is strong and ready to carry me and bless me.
