Happy Valentine’s Day! You’re probably here because we finally announced our plans to adopt! I have to admit, I’m super nervous! Our story and everything we’ve been through will all be out there, but what a blessing it is to be in a place where we’re ready to share it. And we’re so full of joy, hope, and love.
As I was posting this, a special song came on that brought me to tears. It was the same song that started playing when I was feeling so broken and defeated. It was sometime after our last fertility treatment. Some may interpret it as a romantic song, and that’s what it was to me before. I also saw it as a song about our relationship with the Lord. It had a different meaning for me that day though, and I knew it was God speaking to me and nudging me down a different path. The words spoke right to my heart. For me, this song is about the road to our sweet child. It seems fitting that it came on just now as a gentle reminder that this is our road, beautifully broken, and we continue to be blessed as we travel it.
Here is the song in case you’d like to listen to it:
I set out on a narrow way many years ago
Hoping I would find true love along the broken road
But I got lost a time or two
Wiped my brow and kept pushing through
I couldn’t see how every sign pointed straight to you
That every long lost dream lead me to where you are
Others who broke my heart, they were like northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you
