my wife,capt america's shield and me

Dear Brothers and Sisters:

i will take at least a week from posting due to the fact that my wife in the last 3 months has had 2 miscarriages. The pain,sadness and depression she feels makes me feel like capt americas shield-i stand in front of her taking blows from life,sin,world etc-yet unlike his impregnable

shield i take blows that leaves dents-and it is only thru Christ that it does not buckle and break.

12I know how to be abased and live humbly in straitened circumstances, and I know also how to enjoy plenty and live in abundance. I have learned in any and all circumstances the secret of facing every situation, whether well-fed or going hungry, having a sufficiency and enough to spare or going without and being in want.
13I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who [a]infuses inner strength into me; I am [b]self-sufficient in Christ's sufficiency]. (phil 4:12-13)

And he said, “Who are you?” So she answered, “I am Ruth, your maidservant. Take your maidservant under your wing,[a] ( ruth 3:9a)

we've had debates on adopting(i am a adopted child) and she agrees in time we should adopt but and i hear her desire to have a biological child again-yet she does not hear my point that love given and received from a adopted child-is just like the love received and given from a biological child and sometimes it surpasses the natural one... a sperm and egg does not alone equal maternal or paternal love--but someone else's sperm and egg also equals maternal and paternal love. so please pray for my wife wanda,my son who wants a little brother and sister and me who would love just as fiercely and equally a adopted or natural son or daughter.
