Unanswered Prayers




Well I have heard this song Unanswered Prayers before, I think Tim McGraw sings it. And I remember thinking that in a way it reminded me of mine and Ryan's relationship. We both were both dating different people and I was still a highschool girl. We had both recently gone through struggles. I had in a months time lost 4 people who I was close to in my life. Both of us met and were just what we needed. Now 8 years later I was driving home I heard the song and realized that this song means a lot more to me now than I even thought. Especially because today is the one year anniversary that Brooklynn became our "OFFICIAL" daughter in court. As Ryan and I struggled for many years with out a child, those "unanswered prayers" were because Brooklynn was waiting for us. Sometimes even though it is hard and we do not know why there are many blessings on the way. I am so thankful for my sweet little angel. Even though it was a great trial and after we had her, waiting for so long until she was officially ours. It was all worth the wait. Sometimes Unanswered Prayers are exactly what we need.
