The last blog I wrote was before we had our first meeting with an adoption agent… And then I left you all hanging. I’m SORRY!!
I was VERY emotional for about a week afterwards. It’s a whole new set of emotions that accompany this journey…
There is SO much involved in the process of adoption. Paperwork, background checks, home study.
But it will all be so worth it in the end.
Adoption is one of those things a lot of people talk about, but I don’t think everyone actually understands.
Some people adopt because they can never have children. Some people adopt because they feel like God is putting it on their hearts to do so.
And then there’s the birth mother.
What a painful, heartbreaking, emotional decision.
Yet one that is so completely selfless that it just astounds me.
It takes a strong woman to realize that they may not be capable of giving their child the life that they deserve and then trusting – often total strangers – to raise that child.
For us to be chosen by one of those women would be simply amazing.
Our faith is completely in God through all of this.
He knows the ending. And He knows everything in between.
Awhile ago I wrote about how God Never Wastes a Hurt and it still holds so true.
There are some VERY exciting possibilities happening in the next few months and we are fully aware that this process can be frustrating and often heartbreaking. But just like every thing else that we’ve done on this journey, we are trusting it to God.
We are praying for our child, wherever they are and whatever stage in life they may be. We are praying for their biological parents that will entrust them to our care – for comfort and peace. We will be forever thankful to them whenever they choose us.
And we will take any and all prayers and good thoughts that you want to send our way!!
