A Tale of Disbelief

  Everyone seems to ask the same question, does it seem real yet?  The midnight feedings & diaper changes definitely feel real, but in all honesty I still have moments of disbelief.  I have found myself getting emotional this past week when I would look down at my beautiful baby girl.  It is hard to believe that she is mine!  It is hard to believe that a whole month has passed!  It is hard to believe that a month ago we got THE call!  Our journey to a family has seemed so long, but NOW all of it seems OH SO WORTH IT! God is So Good!

If you are in the midst of a trial or climbing a mountain, I will leave you with these lyrics.  Words that have filled me up when I needed it the most!

One Thing Remains
By: Jesus Culture

Higher than the mountains that I face
Stronger than the power of the grave
constant in the trial and the change

One thing remains

Your love never fails
It never gives up
It never runs out on me

Because on and on and on and on it goes
It overwhelmes and satisfies my soul
And i'll never, ever, have to be afraid

One thing remains

In death
In life 
I'm confident and covered by the Power of Your great love

My dept is paid 
Theres nothing that can separate
My heart from Your great love


  1. LOVE that song and YES! The things God has us face are to bring us face to face with the things that are worth it the end!

  2. She is so beautiful!!! So happy for you!!!

  3. Hi Shayla! I just saw that you and your husband were blessed with the sweetest baby girl! And I love her name so much! I am so thrilled for you and your little family! God is so good! I love this song and am so thankful for you and your sweet words and encouragement! If she isn't all ready I hope little Audie will start sleeping through the night soon. :)

  4. Congratulations again! And I know exactly how you feel Shayla. I feel the same way when I look at our son. :o) I know it's real, but when you've waited so long and tried so hard it takes a while until you really feel it's real. I am so happy for you and your perfect little family. God is good!
