If I didn't answer the call before....

So, adoption has been the word of the month around the Robbins' House. And a sweet friend (who answered the call to adopt only to find out, she would be having a sweet little miracle of her own too) text me on Sat. morning and told me to go read a blog post about adoption and the questions and answers couples feeling the call to adopt. I can't even begin to thank her for this!

So, yeah it took me 1 1/2 days to get around to it, but I am so glad that I did. Another adoptive mother/ blogger, Grace In My Heart wrote probably the BEST/ MOST HELPFUL post I have ever read. She included her story and questions she and her husband had initially with both her 1st adoption and her 2nd, as well as asked her readers to post the questions and answer them on their own blog so we could read them. I literally bawled through her whole post with links to different points in her adoption timeline. Not a cry that is sad or upset, one that was uncontrollable, (much like when I hear a church song that moves me to tears). I then went on to read the comments and other's posts. If I ever wondered what it was like for God to talk to me specifically outside of each message at church, this was it.

I know that without a shadow of a doubt that this is what God has planned for The Robbins! I know that it may sound "hokie" but, I truly believe that when we aren't hearing what God is saying or we aren't sure if he is trying to tell us something, he finds multiple ways to reach you. I feel this was God with a big sign reading "To Morgan From Your Father :)"! I have prayed for Him to show me how to embark on this new journey and help me understand how we will be able to do this. And this blog post was my answer.

Today during our church Celebration, we sang, You Never Let Go, (which is one that moves me to tears every time) and man those lyrics fit perfectly, totally reassuring me that he hasn't let go, even through this storm that is called infertility. He is showing us his plans and going to hold on to us no matter what happens. Its always easier to test the water knowing you have a life jacket on... He is our life jacket!


  1. Thanks for your comment on my post! I think it's so beautiful how the Lord speaks to each of us, exactly as we need to see/hear it.

    I'm so happy for you that your heart is open to adoption. I find it hard to put into words the enormous blessings we've been given through adoption. I look forward to seeing what the Lord has in store for your family!

  2. Weren't the Adoption Q&A posts just Wonderful?!?! I loved reading each and every one of them. I am so glad that God is reaching out to you about adoption. Ever since we became "officially approved" with our adoption agency, I feel EQUAL excitement over an adoption phone call and/or a BFP! God's timing is perfect!

  3. You and your hub are adorable! I'm so glad the Q & A's helped and your heart is opening to adoption. It is a beautiful gift and a way to motherhood! :)
