(picture from 2 years ago)
As many of you know, my husband and I began the process of trying to adopt another girl for our family almost 3 years ago. We could have had another biological child, but adoption has always been on our heart.
The deafening, painful silence of the day God didn’t show up. That was our drop dead date. We were to be done. Finished with adoption. Getting on with our life.
And the day came and went quietly.
How do I adequately explain to my kids that God hears our prayers. And He always answers. Sometimes its a yes. Sometimes He says no. And sometimes, He says not yet.
My head gets it.
I nod in agreement when people keep reminding me. But I wanna spit nails on the inside. Cuz’ it doesn’t make it FEEL any better.So, if you have someone in your world waiting on a child…..I’d like to encourage you to encourage them.
Because that sliver of faith that YOU have in OUR journey is some days enough to sustain MY faith.
