I’m scared.  

By Sarah Delamarter / March 21, 2017 /

April 16, 2916 and I’m scared. Adoption is the biggest ask of Fair God has ever asked if me. And I’m scared. I’m scared that I’m not really hearing Gods voice. I’m scared that I will ruin my family. I’m scared that I will have too many kids and not be the great mother I…

Maybe this hard because Gods will is so often hard? Maybe this hurts and we delve into our deepest pieces of our lives because the…

By Sarah Delamarter / February 2, 2017 /

March 21, 2016. “Do not let me be scared out of your will” That is me right now. It’s not that I think brining home more children is outside of Gods will for us, it’s just paralyzingly terrifying. Yesterday, on the first Day of Spring 2016, I sent an inquiry email to an adoption agency. I…

It’s not practical. It’s God. 

By Sarah Delamarter / February 2, 2017 /

It doesn’t make sense. It is not at all a practical thing to do. This is what I said to myself back in March of 2015. I am not someone who people would readily refer to as practical. I’ve gotten a lot more practical as a mother and since being married to a very practical…

May she be Beautiful but not Damaged, for it’s the Damage that draws the creepy soccer coach’s eye, not the the Beauty. When the Crystal Meth…
