Why are we here?
One of the questions that we get asked often is why we have continued trying to adopt after the disappointments that we have experienced. I will admit that there have been times that I have had the same thought, but the answer is always the same... somewhere out there we have a child and we have no choice but to do everything within our power to find her and bring her home. I believe with every inch of my heart and soul, no question, beyond any doubt, with 100% conviction that we have been led on this journey, not by our own desires, but by God's own hand. Why has he chosen us and why this child? I do not know, but as I follow the journeys of those that have travelled this road before us, I am humbled and amazed that I could be chosen to be part of something so incredibly amazing. When I think back over my life and the many blessings that I have been given, I can't help but think that I have been given much more than I deserve. It will be such an incredible honor and privilege to be entrusted to love and care for another child, I only hope that I will be worthy of this trust and responsibility! If parenting Rylee is half as rewarding as parenting Hanna, than I truly am blessed beyond measure!
