Stuck in a Rut

I feel like I haven't posted from the heart in a while. I have kinda been in a little rut of the day in day out, cooking of 3 meals, making 8 bottles and changing the daily 10+ diapers. 


Yesterday I got to talk with an amazing couple and when telling our story said things out loud that
I needed to remind myself of. Like how far our kids have come! We have only been their parents for a year. Only ...their adoptive parents for a month. It has been a journey and a half, would I do it over again? In a heartbeat! I would jump into parenthood faster now being able to see the amazing and quick results! I am starting to feel less like a lump of shapeless clay being squeezed and painfully molded and more like the beginning stage of a molded vessel. Who knows what I will look like next year!? I can tell you I have a hope that truly does not disappoint!


Romans 5:3-5 "And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us."
