The last three weeks have been incredibly difficult. I have literally been brought to my knees, begging God to fix all the things that were (are) broken.

I know that He is faithful. I know He is trustworthy. He has a plan for my life, for my family. Even though we are going through a very difficult season.

We have been really struggling since deciding that we couldn't move forward with our referral. I am just not sure where we stand and what it all means. Not to mention all the other things that have come up.

It's all just too much. We have decided to take a little break from our adoption journey. We just need to step away from it for a bit. With all of the other stuff we are dealing with, we just can't do it all.

Please pray for us during this season.  I will continue to blog - but be forewarned! It will be a lot of fun, sweet posts about my family. I am going to be doing a lot of snuggling, playing, and making up for lost time with my babies and my hubby. They haven't gotten the best of me lately. And you know what? They deserve my very best.

I am putting my pain, my stress, my uncertainty, my bad attitude, our adoption, our future, and everything else that is sucking the life out of me at my Savior's feet.  I am giving it to him. And for the first time in a long time, I am walking away.

You are right where you should be, Michelle, at His feet. That's the best, safest, most secure place to be. Hang in there, friend.

Rest in His arms. Enjoy the blessings around you (your family). And know that you are being prayed for.

Oh Michele, I know the past month has been SO hard on you, and I am just glad to see that you have made this CHOICE to leave it at HIS feet and focus on your family. Because you're absolutely RIGHT ~ they DO deserve the very BEST "YOU" !! ...and you deserve them, too!

Praying for a time of healing, refreshing, comfort and a peace that surpasses all understanding. Find rest in Him and allow Him to sustain you as you continue to trust His lead... that's exactly the path you want to be on, sweet friend!

Blessings & Hugs,
~ Tanya
