God has transformed our lives, destroyed any hopes we had for the American dream, and given us a new worldview and dream with Him at the center of it all!  ~Amanda

Sweet Baby Mine, I am so anxious to meet you!  (Mommy is not a very patient person, and she has been waiting to hold you for a long, long time!)

Mommy & Daddy are almost finished with all that they can do for your adoption.  God is teaching us about waiting for very special things- and you are the most special of all!  You are priceless, and worth every moment of the wait.

I have started to daydream about you.  For a long time I wouldn’t let myself, because I was afraid that it would hurt too much.  I don’t have a picture of you in my mind, because I don’t know what God is creating you to look like.  I just imagine snuggling with you, feeding you, and giving you lots and lots of kisses!

Wherever you are, I know that you and your birthmom are in God’s hands, and I’m trusting Him to take care of you.  I love you so much, Mommy

Larry Crabb on Shattered Dreams

Shattered dreams are never random.  They are always a piece in a larger puzzle, a chapter in a larger story.  The Holy Spirit uses the pain of shattered dreams to help us discover our desire for God, to help us begin dreaming the highest dream.  They are ordained opportunities for the Spirit to awaken, then to satisfy our highest dream.  ~Larry Crabb
