Description
Sometimes it is not easy to see what is around you if something is too close to your face. After taking a step back one can realize what truly is important and what is not of importance. Being in love is something that used to be extremely relative to me until finding my soul mate and experiencing the birth of my daughter. My name is Adalia and at twenty seven years of age, I have known what it is like to be in an unhappy marriage, to be in a successful marriage, to have success, setbacks, and to experience God like never before. Throughout the years spent in my first marriage I suffered from severe emotional damage and abuse. Even though things were great from the beginning, our marriage quickly turned into endless turmoil. As the love that held us together quickly disappeared, it was like living life without oxygen. As I begin to look for answers with each new circumstance, I quickly turned to God and he ultimately led me to my soul mate. As I transitioned to my new life with my husband and renewing my walk with God, I began to discover what it meant to have faith, hope, and love. Throughout our journey together as a married couple there have been twists and turns along the way however this allowed for me to see life through spiritual eyes. My life with my soul mate has been fulfilling in every imaginable way and each new experience has led us to grow individually and together. As we have faced challenges and triumphs we have been able to use our story as a testimony to others that we have met along the way. My soul mate has not only helped me to reunite my passions and dreams, but has helped me achieve many successes. As I set out to achieve my personal goal of starting my marketing firm this ultimately opened doors to new heights and challenges. As both of our careers peaked, my husband and I quickly found ourselves in a whirlwind of setbacks. Our comfy life came to an abrupt halt forcing us to leave everything behind and dive into the unknown. In addition, I would soon find out that we would be expecting a daughter which presented new questions that there were no answers for. The feelings of frustration, anguish, and despair left me once again questioning God as my faith hung in the balance as we attempted to sort things out. Not knowing where our next meal was coming from or if there would be a roof over our heads, all contributed to my emotional decline and took me to a place I did not want to be. As I battled for my life throughout my pregnancy, the feelings of desolation soon set it on my husband. With several obstacles in front of us the blessings arrived in abundance, and through that I realized my story was meant to be heard.
