"I asked for strength that I might achieve; I was made weak that I might learn to humbly obey.
I asked for health that I might do greater things; I was given infirmity that I might do better things.
I asked for riches that I might be happy; I was given poverty that I might be wise.
I asked for power that I might have the praise of men; I was given weakness that I might feel the need of God.
I asked for all things that I might enjoy life; I was given life that I might enjoy all things.
I got nothing that I had asked for, but everything that I had hoped for.
Almost despite myself my unspoken prayers were answered; I am , among all men, most richly blessed."
-an unknown Confederate soldier
We may not have any clue when we will get to meet and hold our son, still have far to go financially with the adoption, and currently have only one functioning vehicle, but we are among all men most richly blessed.
