I stand in awe of a God who truly can bring beauty from pain. You have GOT to check out Patrice's version of the story. Though God's story isn't easily put into words (I surely fell short) she told it beautifully. You cannot help but be blessed by a story ONLY God could have written. If you EVER doubted there was a God, this story proves it UNDENIABLE. I am brought to my knees with gratitude that he weaved my little family into such a magnificent story, through heartache and pain, there is beauty from the ashes. Here is just a blurb from Patrice's blog tonight...seriously you have GOT to go read the whole thing. :)
"Sometimes, when we think that good could NEVER come from things so awful and we think we'll never come through the Valley of the Shadow of Death, God is working and orchestrating something so beautiful, we could never imagine it in a million years. Did God take our babies so Anton would find his family? I don't think so. Did God allow Jonah and Hope to have EB so Anton could come home? I doubt it. But He is able to do immeasurably more than we could ever imagine to bring hope and joy out of dark places."
