Take Time...

Take be together!  As we "wait" for our precious little ones to join our lives, we often put our marriages and other relationships at risk.  Some feel like we can't possibly bare to be anymore emotionally invested in someone, while others are just focused on the "goal."  Whatever it is, make sure  you take time out to rekindle your love affair with each other, meet for coffee, or leave for a weekend with no electronics in reach.  Lastly, pray together.  Cover your marriage and other relationships in prayer-you will need them when your kiddos come!~Kassandra

Weather the Storm

Quite a few of my friends and blog acquaintances are going through a lot of storms right now as they wait, believe, beg, and hope.  Saw this picture and thought I would share it as a way of encouragement.  Know your not alone folks and someone out there is praying for you and your story to have a happy ending~Kassandra

The Promise

For the last ten years, my husband and I have struggled to understand our "baby story."  The only thing that keeps us going is-The Promise.  By that I mean, the promise that God has spoken to both of us that we WILL have children together.  At times it hard to explain to family and friends when we barely understand.  Yet, we've held on.  There have been times when we tried to stray or take matters into our own hands, but it never worked out-failed adoption, medical trauma, denied bank loans, etc.  Yet, there God was, with open arms, reminding us that He has a plan unlike the one we ever imagined.  I came across the following picture on another blogger's site and felt this summed up my thoughts.  Please be encouraged dear ones and know there is a Promise for you too! ~Kassandra
