SHOW QUOTES

After being on the journey that I’ve been through, I see myself stronger and more independent than I was before. I learned along the way how to rely on God more through the hardest times. It grew my marriage. We have seen God truly work miracles.

My doctors were shocked. They had never seen anything like this. I looked at them and told them, “I serve a big God. Only he can do that.”

We took pictures of all of us together so I could show her, “These are all the people who have loved you from Day 1, and will continue to love you.”

I always knew I would be a mom. And I always had a heart for adoption. Did it turn out the way I thought? No, it turned out better.

It will be the hardest thing you could do, but God will give you strength and help you do what you need to do.

God is always with you, even in the hardest, darkest days, when you think “There’s no way we’re getting out of this!” and you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel.

God has shown us that He is truly much bigger than anything we could want or need.
