"Hope is the abiding trust that Heavenly Father fulfills His promises."
I believe it was about a year ago that I heard a brother in our ward share this quote in a talk in Sacrament. I quickly jotted it down because I had often felt like I was losing hope for the promises I wanted fulfilled. The hope that Berrett and I would some day be parents.
Well we have had our up's and down's and I have often picked up that piece of paper and read it and silently asked Heavenly Father to help me to keep my hope alive and to believe He would fulfill His promises.
I can tell you today He keeps His promises!! A expectant mom and her parents and family have chosen us to adopt her baby girl.
We want to protect her privacy and the privacy of our future daughter so we won't be sharing very many details. She is due in late June, early July and we are very excited!
We ask you our friends and family to pray for her, to pray for the father and their families. Pray that they may be comforted and at peace with their decision. Please pray that they have all that they stand in need of at this great time of change. Also please pray that the Lord will pour out blessings on their heads for sharing this beautiful gift with us. Please pray for us as well. Adoption is costly and we will have many changes to make in our lives as well. I will say it again though, "Hope is the abiding trust that Heavenly Father fulfills His Promises." I KNOW He does.
