Sorrows Turned to Joy Infertility/Adoption Memoir Story
This week on HeartWings blog I have shared a short memoir story about a time God turned my sorrows into joy.
Writing this post for the lovely HeartWings blog inspired this haiku:
yesterday’s answered prayers
I believe today
…weeping may endure for a night,
but joy cometh in the morning.
Psalm 30:5 KJV

I read your story and thought how similar our paths have been…although very different too.
we had many tests and minor surgery done for infertility. We had a private adoption fall through…waded through three adoptions through an agency. Funny how the convoluted path has led to such blessing. Now raising a granddaughter when I expected to be pursuing my own interests. God had other plans. He is good to not give me what I want, but instead gives me something better.
Karen, my only regret is that I wish I would have realized and trusted sooner that His plans are much “better” than mine ever are. I agree “He is good to not give me what I want, but instead gives me something better.” <3
Your story really touched me. It comforted me regarding a loss of my own. <3
Mama losses are the most painful to bear. I’ve been shedding a few tears just because one of my sons moved into his own place (silly me). Growing pains hurt even when they’re good stuff. <3 Hugs.
I understand. I have also found that the Lord is so kind to grant us with loving Christian friendships that help to fill the void. <3
<3 He's a good Father.
Oh Wendy xx That you find light in knowing the baby was saved, and that you and your husband played a role in it not having been aborted, is beautiful. HUGE hugs <3
Thank you, Christy. Writing helps me process things and arrive on the joy side of sorrows. Your words have blessed me, dear friend. <3
