This summer a large number of bloggers did a "Prayer Buddy" campaign, and I had the privilege of praying for Pray, Hope, and Don't Worry. She is an amazing, courageous woman who has endured multiple failed adoptions and the pain of infertility. A couple weeks ago, she adopted a precious baby girl! I've relished all of the pictures of her holding her long awaited daughter. What a blessing to see the painful wait ended and the joy begun. Of course, many people have been praying for PHDW and her husband for a while (heck, her sister-in-law is a Poor Clare nun!), so I'm glad to have added my little prayers to all of theirs. PHDW also exemplifies a hard lesson we all try to learn: never give up, trust in God.
God bless your new journey as a mom! (By the way, I will mail your package this week. Sorry it's a bit late!)
Thanks, TCIE and JBTC for organizing the prayer buddy effort. :)
