Since some of you are check out the blog for the first time I thought I would let you know what is currently going on with our adoption.
We are waiting. To be honest, I have been waiting a long time to get to this point in the waiting. God has been teaching me patience in the hardest way I know. I have always wanted to be a mother. I love children. I spend a lot of time with kids and have cared for numerous children over my 33 years, starting with my little brother when I was 5. Mothering is something I was born to do.
Since we have been trying to conceive for 6 years it seems like an eternity of waiting. But during all that time I have been able to use my mothering skills to help others. Of course, I wish it had not turned out this way. I wish we would have already had children. But the Lord’s plan A is often our plan B. He knew we were the type of people that could love a child who was not biologically our own and gave us this special plan to adopt. Don’t get me wrong, the waiting is not easy, but we can already see the reward in the children I have cared for already. When our Little One is finally placed with us I know it will all have been worth the wait.
Psalm 27:13-14 I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the Lord.
