My mind has been turning over and over while trying to somehow digest all of the inspiration, encouragement and knowledge I gained this weekend at the retreat for adoptive moms I went to. I met some amazing women and was excited to meet some of my blog readers for both Sole Hope and this blog. I feel so ready to embark on this journey of adoption. This is not to say we won't mess up, I mean-if we didn't mess up as parents how would our children know they need God? :) At this retreat I was able to listen and learn from very seasoned mom's who have adopted. Some of them started their journey because of infertility and soon realized adoption was not plan B, but in God's plan this was plan A. Some of the mothers have biological children and adoptive children. However, every mother had a BEAUTIFUL story that was moving and littered with God's resurrection and faithfulness. A story that exemplified love, and that perfect love drives out fear.
I had so much fun with my Wiphan friends (Wiphan has made a huge impact on Sole Hope). I manned the Wiphan/Sole Hope table and loved meeting people and talking about two ministries I LOVE.
