Now here is my layout based on this gorgeous sketch.,
Of course if you have followed my blog for a while, you must understand what this biblical quote means and why I used it with a photo of Sofia and I. Throughout the long journey to have Sofia, my relationship with God changed many times.  It was hard not to be angry at Him for what I went through. I wondered some days "which Father would wish this pain on their child?" .  I prayed daily for a baby, a healthy baby this time. When I found out I was pregnant, I ironically turned to Him again and of course just like any parent He forgave me for my anger. It felt that my cries had reached Him. Time passed, my anger settled and I started to see some reasons for all the battles. Unfortunately I needed to go through this to find myself. And I have.
