Doug taped this one to the steering wheel of his car
And I literally slept with all three pictures every night, dozing off while staring into these eyes so bright with wisdom and care
Words honestly fail at the gift we were given, at the beauty that continues to unfold that is our Ravenna. Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined life could be so beautiful. I thank the Lord that He had a different plan than I did, that He caused the path to parenthood to be rocky enough that we could pause and hear His voice.
Any of you reading this...if God is stirring your heart towards adoption in any way in your life...seek it out. Take time to be still and listen, take time to pray, take time to lay down your thoughts and fears before the God of all compassion because He may be whispering. And if He is, there is no way you want to miss this journey!
