My good friend and her husband adopted a little boy last February and they have been dealing with a lot of hard issues since then. I made her this card for Mother's Day to remind her that God has a purpose for this situation (and every situation) and has put each of us in this relationship for a reason. The sentiment on the front reads "Every experience God gives us, every person He puts in our lives is the perfect preparation for the future that only He can see."--Corrie Ten Boom
Please excuse my thumb in the picture below, but I had to hold the card closed as it has some fun folds as you sill see in the other photos.
