I had loads of big plans and ideas for myself after college graduation. All that changed when I saw that positive pregnancy test. I remember laying face flat on my apartment floor just weeping. I never felt more alone and ashamed of the choices that I made that got me to that point. But, I clearly heard God's voice in that dark moment..."I'm still here and I have never left you." Fast forward 10 years later, God has redeemed and restored my past. He has blessed me with more than I could have ever dreamed up for myself! The Lord has turned my past into a purpose and compassion for teen moms and fostering children that need safe homes. He has done so much for me, the least I can do is share Him with others who are struggling in dark time too. Even if I never see fruit in the seeds I sow in others... Even if we continue to foster kids and never are able to adopt... Even if my heart is broken over these kids leaving our home... Even if I love them all like they are my own... I will choose to trust and rejoice in my Savior because through it all, He has never left my side.
