Hope Renewed

I’ll be honest. When it came to our adoption, even up until yesterday, I was feeling hopeless. I was more nervous than excited to bring home a 3.5 and 2.5 year old. I was wondering if this was all worth it. I was feeling forgotten. That my girls were being forgotten. I had been praying […]
