  1. Thank you for coming by my blog. So sorry you are having to go through all of this. It’s so so hard. I pray for all the girls struggling on here, and I will pray for you, too! Hugs, my friend!

  2. I completely understand!! Keep trying, I am always praying for those I know of who seek families, so now you’re on the list.

    Dear Lord,

    Please intercede into the lives of Victoria and Joseph and give them the family they so desire. We know you are a God of healing and miracles and that you love this couple more than any of us can imagine. Your timing is perfect and our pain isn’t permanent, if your will would allow, please hasten a healthy pregnancy for Victoria and Joseph. You’re always good. In Jesus name, Amen!
