Sharifa-- thanks so much for sharing this! First of all... Praise the Lord for his faithfulness and blessings! It's so awesome to learn about your journey. Second of all... you are such a gifted writer! I LOVED reading this! and Third of all, like Ashley above, I'm not married or anywhere near baby making, but while I was in college I learned of a hormone imbalance I have which may affect my ability to have children some day. This was devastating news to me, especially for someone who has always always loved kids and wanted her own. Doctors tried to comfort me with "there are procedures that can be done..." but I believe in a God who can provide, even in such circumstances. Finally, I reached a point where I had to cry out to God... He knows my heart and desire for children some day... how could He allow this potential problem? I KNEW He could overcome it, but I had to get to a place where I was okay with His will, no matter what that looks like. It was then that I realized God has given me a heart for all children and it would be a joy and honor to adopt should I not be able to have my own. That's all a long ways off, but one day we shall see how God chooses to provide!
