HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD!!!

Slide show of how we became a family and How Great God has been to the Glas Family!




Jason and I have been dealing with infertility now for almost 6 years, and I was thinking about how our family is a miracle! People assume that when you adopt that you "get over" infertility issues, which is NOT true at all!! I still have a great desire to carry a child in my womb and to be able to bring life into this world. I still get hopeful ever month that maybe this will be it! It is that hope and then despair every month for 6 years that gets heartbreaking!! Jason and I want more children and plan to adopt more children (as soon as we raise the funds again!!!). And it hit me this weekend that we depend on women to give away their own children in order for us to have children!! I could not image giving up one of my children and yet I am asking that of other mothers. Now don't get me wrong, I would not trade my children for anything in this world!! Those of you who know me know that my three mean the world to me and I love them with all my heart plus more!! It is just that reality has set in that God has created our family to have adopted children and I will probably never experience pregnancy. I am actually overcome with joy to think that God has chosen us to parent these children, how blessed we are!! I do not think I am any less of a mother because I did not carry these children for nine months, and I know that they were created to be OUR children. I know that God has other children out there or to be born soon that are meant to be our children and what a MIRACLE! I hate the comments like, "you had kids the easy way" or "at least you did have to deal with being pregnant", or my favorite "you did not miss much!". For those of you who have adopted know that adoption is not EASY and you wish you had not missed a minute of your child's life. Harrison and Mary Elizabeth we wished 6 months of their life that I wish they had been with us and our sweet Harper, we missed 3 1/2 years of her life. It breaks my heart to think of the situation she lived in for that time with no food and love. But praise be to God that we will never have to miss another minute! I am just so thankful for our infertility because God has blessed our family and what a testimony to Him for His Greatness! That Only God can bring together people from all over the world to make One family!! Kind of sounds like the Church doesn't it!!!!That God can bring people from every tribe, tongue and nation to form ONE family, the family of God! HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD!!

How precious... And so very true! I adore watching our dark skinned Guatemalan born toddler and light skinned caucasian baby girl. God gifted them 2 us in 2 very different ways but both experiences were equally exciting and stressful and full of wonder. Your 3 children are unbelievaby lucky to have been gifted you as their mother! You mean so much to me and have taught me so much about loving children unconditionally...

Oh this post hit so close to home!! You're right even though we adopt our children we never do get past the hurt of the infertility! Being a mom of 2 bio children and one adopted from GUA I can tell you I still have issues with the infertility!
I too have been having much realization about wanting more children, but how unfiar it is to the other mother who has to place her child for me to love!! GOD IS GREAT though in EVERY way!
