For this child I have prayed
As I read the last blog I wrote back in September, I am overwhelmed with thankfulness and awe at God’s purpose and timing in my life. After 3 hard years of struggling with infertility, multiple failed infertility procedures, and many days of grieving over a child we did not have, God finally said yes.
He finally said the time was right to give us a child and we are 7 weeks pregnant with a baby girl.
Around Christmas, Corey and I made the decision to try one more infertility treatment and then we were done trying. We had heard from friends about embryo adoption and I looked into it. We found an affordable doctor and we received 3 female embryos. The process was simple and easy and GOD SAID YES!
We believe that God always had adoption as part of our plan, as we both have a heart to adopt. This way, we get to experience adoption and pregnancy. It’s like a hybrid-adoption if that’s a thing.
It has been a very long journey, and God has taught me many lessons through the process. Now, we are very excited to announce Paige Michelle Daniel, expected to arrive November 7, 2018.
And I can say with Hannah, “For this child I have prayed, and the Lord has granted me my petition.” (1 Samuel 27)
