You have a very noble task. One meant for only you. You have had lives shaped and formed inside your very being and God allows you to continue to form and shape them on earth. (For adoptive omoms, we had the blessing after this.) Wow. Talk about a gift. They may drive us crazy, with the high pitched squeals and fits but just as the potter shapes and forms us, we are shaping the lives of our children to be a masterpiece. One created by a loving Savior to be used for His service. They will get chipped and cracked through life, but that is the beauty of art. Something beautifully used by the Master to be an example of hope to others.
Praying for peace in our homes and hearts that long for Him!
