Father to the fatherless, defender of widows — this is God, whose dwelling is holy. God places the lonely in families.

Psalm 68:5-6

Just to See You Smile

If somebody had told me,
just how painful it would be to love you from a distance.
Just how painful it would be to hold you,
knowing how quickly it would all come to an end.
Just how painful it would be to leave you,
over and over again.
I’m not sure I would have embarked on this journey.
I’m thankful nobody told me.
I’m thankful I didn’t know the pain I would feel.
Now that I know the pain,
I would do it all over again.
Just to see you smile.
Just to feel your warm embrace.
The joy of loving you is greater than the pain.
Maybe that’s why nobody told me.

Little Bit of Joy

We received some adorable pictures of our baby girl that made us smile. Thought I would share a few. It is heartwarming to see her so joyful:)


Getting her hair done

our silly girl:)

best buds!

Wishing she was here with us but thankful that she seems content right where she is. God is good. Praying we will get the opportunity to see our baby soon! Missing her more than I could begin to describe in words. My heart literally aches most days. I never quite understood what it meant to wait until we started this process... now I understand it all to well. Please pray for us:)
