When you know it's right, then you know it's right. When you feel that it is wrong, you have to be brave enough to do what is right.
Today, I had an adoption opportunity fall into my lap and after much pondering and prayer, I knew that is wasn't right and we said no. For privacy reasons, I am not going to go into detail, however, I wanted to share that Brian and I have very strong testimonies about the right time with the right family with the right baby. And as tempting as circumstances may present themselves, we have to be in tune with what the Lord wants and what is best for his children.
So tonight, I take a deep breath, I kiss my baby good night, I hug my husband, and I will sleep peacefully and hope that one day, whatever baby(s) that are meant to be with me, that the birthmother will know that I have a glimpse into being brave enough to do what is right.
