As I was getting ready this morning I realized that I haven't thought about "getting pregnant" in months. Getting pregnant was a part of my daily thoughts for years. I thought about it when I got up and before I went to bed and a million times in between. I know our adoption process still has a long way to go but I feel so settled. I know adoption requires patience, and there will be times that I run short on it, but at least I know that it will eventually happen. When you try month after month to get pregnant there is no assurance that it will ever happen.
I always worry about making the right decisions in my life and I want to do what's best for my family. Every once in awhile I wonder if adoption is really the right thing for us. God reassures me every time. Perfect example is the other day my nephew Kolten spent the night with Isaac. While they were eating breakfast they were talking about Kolten's little sister Lily. I heard Isaac say "I'm Lily's uncle" and I said "no, she's your cousin". He turned to Kolten and said "dang it, I want to be an uncle......oh, I know! When my Thailand sister has a baby then I will be an uncle!" I grinned to myself and felt a warmness spread through my heart and I felt God's voice say to me "when Isaac's Thailand sister gets here your family will be complete and it IS the path that I want you to take" Without adoption Isaac would never have the opportunity to be an uncle when he's older and to know the joy that having nieces and nephews bring. So, today I am so very thankful for God leading us down the path of adoption and that one day Isaac could be an uncle! :)
