Trusting in the Lord

I personally have felt like I have been through a wringer recently with our hope to adopt. The up and down of it has had me in tears and doubting the feelings that one of our children isn't here with us. I know that this is the right thing for us to be doing, but my patience with the waiting is being tested right now. Anyway, I was messing around on facebook (instead of working on my math homework) and saw a link someone posted for a "Mormon Message" on YouTube. The church posts a new clip on YouTube each week with a message about various topics. The one from facebook was called "What Matters Most", and it was a great message. There is always a list of other videos off on the side, so I started watching some of them. I was getting hungry, and decided to watch one more before having lunch. It was called "Trusting in the Lord". I was not expecting a video about adoption, but it was really powerful to me. The way the woman worded how she felt and what she learned, spoke straight to my soul. I hadn't thought about adoption teaching me this particular lesson and I am grateful I can have a new view of what I might need to learn from all of this.

Thanks for sharing that! I really needed to hear that as well. The "waiting" part has really gotten me down lately. Perhaps, I just need to trust more. Thanks!

Hey, not quite sure why these stories touch me so much. But thanks for sharing.

I was just thinking about you and your desire to adopt the other day. I was going to email to ask how the process was going, but now I see how it is. That was a great video. I can't even imagine how difficult the waiting must be. I hope that your child finds you soon!
