This painting is my favorite thing in our nursery. JP had someone paint it for us shortly after our first miscarriage to remind us of who we are. We aren’t people that are led by despair or darkness but rather people that are led by hope! So it felt perfectly fitting for this to be the first thing we hung up when preparing our home and our hearts for a future new addition. So...as we wait, we wait expectantly and with hope! Hope that we will have an amazing relationship with our future birth family that is full of mutual respect and honor. Hope that our future child will live fully in the knowledge of how beautiful their story is. And hope that our lives, in this process and beyond, will be a reflection of Jesus and his extravagant love and grace for all of us!
