Late-Night Adoption Thoughts
Adoption is hard.
We made the commitment to adopt the rest of our children when Fallyn was a baby, but good thing we--I mean Rick--took that official step last December. I might be mighty tempted by now to just add another child the easy way. Probably not REALLY, but I'd be tempted. Which leads me to my next thought. . .
. . . God is patient. I am not. I am trying to be. I was patient for about two years, but these last 10-12 months or so I don't think I have been.
My kids are being patient, bless their hearts. Rick is being patient. I'm glad I have those 3.
I just wish I knew SOMETHING. . . even which continent. After 3 years of this, we have no clue what God is doing. My friend who I saw Saturday said that is exactly what she said after dealing with infertility for quite some time--she just wished she knew something, anything. . . even if God said it'd be X-many years from then, or never at all, that that'd be better than not knowing anything.
So there's my super-profound adoption post. I am not patient and I don't like not knowing anything.
Tomorrow I'll try to find some time to dig deep with God about all that--again. :) It's about daily here!
