Winding Roads Always Lead to the Most Beautiful of Places {Melinda's Adoption Story}

November is over and our Grateful for Infertility Giveaway is over.  But the stories are not! The response to this series was astounding and we still have many more stories of brokenness, faith, and redemption to share with you.  Women all across the country and even the UK sent us their stories - each brimming with God's glory.  So, we couldn't possibly not share everyone's submissions.   

Today I have the honor of sharing my dear friend Melinda's adoption story with you.  I will go ahead and warn you - have a box of tissue handy!  Many in the adoption community know her well and know her beautiful heart.  She is one of the sweetest friends I've ever had and a fellow Georgia resident.  She is the mommy to Logan who could pass as Ethan's long lost brother - seriously their antics are just alike and they are FULL of energy!  Melinda and her husband are now waiting for "the call" for their second baby (already named "Ruby").  The wait is long but it is always worth it.  God's timing is never early or late and I know Ruby will be in their arms soon.  In the midst of both of these long waits for their children, failed placements, and infertility Melinda has found strength.  Please join us in welcoming her to our blog today and click on Winding Roads Always Lead to the Most Beautiful of Places - Our Adoption Story to read her beautiful, heartfelt story.

A series for people who are grateful for infertility? Sounds crazy right! But it's not... what was once a phase of life marked by heartache and longing, has now become the scars that make us beautiful. Some of you reading this are right in the middle of your wait, are facing an unclear future or have been scarred by infertility. You may be struggling with how you could possibly be grateful for infertility. It took us a long time to get there ourselves. This is one of those areas where sometimes our faith has to guide us while our hearts and heads catch up. We have to practice thankfulness, even when it makes little sense, while God does His divine work on our souls.
