Some days I feel selfish for wanting this.
What makes me so convinced that I am called to parent, that I do not just yearn as every barren woman through time has yearned?
In a world with starving children, homeless families, hurting people, what makes me entitled to something that costs more than the average person in the world makes in a year?
How do I have the audacity to spend my time coordinating fundraisers to fill the rooms in my home with children, when those same fundraisers are being held by other organizations to fill the bellies of starving children?
Lord help me to hear you and to never lose sight of your Kingdom, it's purposes, and it's call to take up my cross. Do not let my heart grow faint of your will and your work.
