However, despite this, I have a peace. A peace that God is in control and even though I don't understand, I don't have to. While the frustrations and sadness and anger float near the top, peace runs deep. Very deep. And for that I am thankful.
I also have hope. I have hope that she will be here by Christmas. While I feel like hope is dangerous (because I don't want to be let down), it's also necessary. So will you hope with me? Will you hope that my baby is here soooon? And if you are one who prays, would you pray that God will break through, perform a miracle, and bring this child home? Will you also pray that Abiella feels our love and is filled with supernatural joy, and that her health would be blessed and that her little body would continue to grow stronger and stronger?
You readers are wonderful, and I appreciate all the warm comments and loving encouragement you have sent us throughout this process. I'm so thankful for you and the creative outlet this blogging world provides. I love that I can sit down and write about anything from debuting on BET to adoption. What a gift!
PS: My beautiful, amazing, wonderful, super-talented sister Maddie is one of the reasons I gathered my guts and started this here blog. She's hilarious and fun and one text from her can have me laughing all day long. This week she has an amazing series going on right now and I may or may not have taken over her blog for the day.
