Today I am so excited to talk about one of my favorite blogs of all time, Traded Dreams. This blog is relatively new to me since I have really only been reading since right before Christmas, but Lauren has captured my heart with her words.
I’ve shared with you guys about a billion times how much it means to me to be a mommy, but I really don’t know if I could ever capture that as eloquently as Lauren does. She too has felt the pain of losing a child, as well as a struggle with infertility. But in that struggle the Lord brought two amazing babies into her world, and when she writes about them I can’t help but just completely fall in love with them too. She has a gift of stringing just the right words together, making it impossible to miss the beauty that is following God’s plan for our lives rather than our own.
I haven’t mentioned it a lot on the blog yet, but I pray every day that the Lord would open the doors financially to help us adopt. Yes, we are blessed to be able to have biological children, but we have both felt the call from early on to adopt children as well. Reading Lauren’s blog makes me feel that ache even more, and I cannot wait to see where the Lord leads us!
I believe that we all need encouragement, we all need love, we all need to read and see things that give us hope. Lauren’s blog is just this, and I would highly encourage everyone to read it for her heartfelt writing (she’s writing a book too!), her warm and inviting spirit, her beautiful photos, and her amazing style. Lauren, keep up the amazing work – you are a blessing!
