Death of a Dream

By Sarah Delamarter / May 16, 2017 /

I have always assumed that there would be one more. That we had one more child coming our way. Always.  Why not? I remember the day that we left the hospital with our 3rd baby and we took the always exciting family photo outside of the hospital before we headed home as a family of… Continue reading →

The Wait.

By Sarah Delamarter / April 11, 2017 /

How long will this wait last? I’ve heard about “the wait”. I’ve read that its hard. I’ve read that its unpredictable. I’ve read that it will break you and rebuild you. Its all true. I’ve heard that it will be worth it. I choose to believe that. Where are you my child? I’ve held the…

By Sarah Delamarter / March 30, 2017 /

This idea of a calling is a big one. I have this notion that a calling on my life will only be a big one. That if God really has a calling for me its only a ‘real calling’ if its huge. It must be right? If God has come a callin’ its because he…

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…
