I Don't Understand

Sometimes the more you try to understand the God's plan the less you do.

Yesterday, I was floored by three families stories. First, I found out about a woman that after trying for years to have a baby, had embraced adopting a baby instead. The birthmother decided at the last minute to change her mind. After this couple had spent $10,000, they will not be bringing a baby home. Next, there is a family that I had become aware of through my twins group. They have boy/ girl twins just like Bill and I do. The girl was diagnosed with a brain tumor a few months ago and has been going through chemo and all that goes along with it. Well, yesterday their son has started exhibiting some of the same symptoms and will be getting an MRI today to see if he also has a brain tumor. Can you imagine? Finally, one of my fellow bloggers was 20 weeks along with boy/ girl twins named Michael and Elena and they died on Weds.

I hugged my babies especially tight this morning. I am thankful for them every single day. I will never forget what I had to go through to bring them home and they will always be the single biggest blessing of my life. While I am grateful for what I have; I am utterly heartbroken for each of these families. I am going to be praying for each of these families this weekend and hope you will do the same.
