This Specific Child

I received an email from one of my good friends today (well, she sent it a long time ago but I have been out of town for almost 3 weeks) and I wanted to share a quote from her email. 

“Isn't it crazy to think that if you'd gotten pregnant any other month it would have been a different egg and different sperm with totally different DNA? It would have been a completely different person! God knows what he's doing - and I think he was waiting for the right sperm and the right egg to be ready so He could create the exact, unique person he wanted - this baby who's growing inside you right now is exactly who God has been waiting to create! How neat is that?”

I think it’s an awesome reminder and hopefully an encouragement that God doesn’t do things haphazardly.  For those of you still waiting for a child to be in your arms, there is a reason why God wants a specific child – that specific egg and sperm to come together…and that time has not happened yet.  God doesn’t want any of us to have just any child in our homes (whether through birth or adoption) He wants all of us to have a SPECIFIC CHILD.


  1. That is a good way of thinking of it Lisa and thank you for sharing. I'll try to keep that in mind when I get discouraged! Congrats by the way, I haven't been a good blogger lately!

  2. Wow! I would never have thought of it that way, but it is so true! Thanks for sharing!
