I posted this on my family blog today and I decided to post it here as well...

I know I have a little birthday to post about, and I know I promised some pictures of Hannah at 1 year...but...I feel I need to post about something very important and so I am going to do it now.  

When Connel and I were having a hard time becoming pregnant, we thought of all the options.  We thought of not doing anything and just "letting" things happen.  We thought of getting infertility treatments...

...and we thought of adoption.

We ultimately wanted to try and become pregnant ourselves...and through prayers, little miracles, and some great/not-so-great medications and hormones...we did.  But, as I researched and read about adoption and the miracle that it is, I gained a testimony that it is truly an act of love and unselfishness, of and for all parties involved.

Today, this post today deeply touched my soul and I felt the strong need to share it, maybe someone out there needed this today.

You remind me a lot of my sister.. just reading through a few of your posts on here.. you remind me of her. She has always wanted to be a momma! She had had trouble getting pregnant. She went to SEVERAL doctors and years of dealing with PCOS stuff.. which is what most doctors said she had.. then some said she didnt have it... long story short her and her hubby ended up going into foster care and adopting 5 children through foster care. You can read her story here: http://the4waystop.blogspot.com/2011/04/use-my-story-lord-for-your-will.html On our sister blog. Its a blog for me and my 3 sisters to share about our lives. :) But anyways I just thought I would share that with you.
