As many of you know, Steve and I have been on quite a journey this past year and a half – and the journey seems to continue to take so many twists and turns. As we have been going through the adoption paperwork, we have learned a great deal about ourselves, our marriage, our expectations and the list goes on and on. As of the past two weeks, we’ve had to do some serious soul searching and we believe in our heart of hearts that we should not move forward with the adoption process. Unfortunately, we are at the top of the age range with the adoption organization we were working with and postponing is really not an option. I can assure you that this decision has not been an easy one, but we have found a perfect peace in finalizing this decision together. The reality is that we serve a BIG God and in Him all things are possible. We will continue to pray for a natural pregnancy or maybe even a private adoption, trusting that His perfect will be done in His perfect timing. I feel as though my grieving process will never end some days, and can’t imagine going through such tests of faith without my faith in the Lord.
The amount of love, support and generous donations we received will never be forgotten. Steve and I will be contacting our friends and family who made donations individually to discuss reimbursement. All profits made from Tastefully Simple and U R My Sunshine will be applied to the loan we took out for our IVF journey. We do ask for your continued prayers. I will most likely continue to sell Tastefully Simple for the simple reason that it is fun… and yummy 🙂
“Be anxious for NOTHING, but in EVERYTHING, by prayer and supplication (to ask for humbly & honestly), with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds through Jesus Christ”–Philippians4:6-7
