Borrow a Child

We participate in the Borrow a Child program.
I really, really want another child.
When we made the decision after Conner
to not have anymore children I kept asking Jim,
"What if we change our mind?" He said we could just adopt.
I said ok!
I am fine with not being pregnant again. (kind of) : (
So I keep tossing the ideas around in my head.
Adopt, foster, supernatural conception.
I am open to whatever.
I have found this last year that if I
just make my desires known to God,
and if they are pure desires,
and my desire is to bring Him glory,
he hears them and brings them to me
in a way I could never, ever imagine.
So I am proclaiming this now,
we will have another child.
How? I don't know.
And I am ok with that because He knows.
It will be in His timing and His way.
And that is so exciting.
It is like Christmas day could come at anytime.
So until then, I will continue with our
Clarks Borrow a Kid program.
And I am grateful that
I get to love on someone elses baby
until ours comes.

I waited patiently for the LORD to help me,
and he turned to me and heard my cry.
Psalm 40:1

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I've never heard of the borrow a child program--do you have another blog entry that talks about it so I could read about it? If not, you'll have to do a post on that--that is so interesting. God bless!

Hi Amey!

Feel free to quote me all you want. I'm here to serve. :) Plus it's very flattering - hee hee...

I'll put a little bug in my husband's ear about part 2. He's been in the 'think through it and take notes' phase. It shouldn't be long for it to come together. If there are any particular challenges you would like him to address - or any questions you have, please let us know and he'll make sure he adds that in.

Thanks! Have a lovely Sunday.
