God is great

I had the most wonderful experience this past weekend attending a baby shower for some dear friends of ours, Stacy and Paula McGrew. Stacy and Paula have been waiting for the phone call telling them that they have a baby and that they are parents. After years of trying to have a baby on their own they turned to adoption.

I could not think of two people more deserving of a child, two people who have more love to give a baby then these two. We were blessed when they came into our lives several years ago and so grateful for their loving friendship. Two weeks ago tomorrow they were told they had a 5 week old little girl waiting for them in Ft. Worth.

I got to meet Lauren Kate at her Meet the World Shower this weekend and she is beautiful and every bit of precious! Every gift, smile and hug that weekend paled in comparission to the love and blessings she brought to her families.

I don't know how hard it is to be told you can't have a baby or you have to wait to adopt a child, but I do know how incredably gorgeous that little life is. The Lord works wonders in each of our lives and I am truly blessed by knowing them and many other friends and family who have gone through similar struggles. How great is our God!
