Her View From Home

 I know that God is always with me, yet in this storm, it didn’t feel like enough. Instead, it felt like He was leading me to the valley of the shadow of someone’s death, and I was doing my best to dig my heels in so we never arrived.

Her View From Home

Our hope in writing this piece is to encourage others who are walking through similar situations that adoption, however painful, is always worth it.
