She admitted that the long process was “frustrating, discouraging, and heartbreaking,” which made her “cried” and “complained.” However, she noted that it was God’s grace that helped her to keep going.

The “Unbreak My Heart” actress still remained optimistic and emphasized that the long wait had a purpose.

“God is never in a hurry. He is never too late. Never too early. Believe He is able to do something about your situation. Trust He has a plan for you and that plan is even better than the one you have for yourself,” she added.
