The Duo has been home for SIX months now. Can you believe it? Like I have said before, it feels like an eternity and a blink of an eye all at once. We celebrated by sending their birth mom some pics. They arrived on the day of the anniversary (we didn’t plan it that way). She saw how happy they are. She saw how well loved they are. She’s still sad. It’s the mixed blessing of adoption. All of us are family now. We’ll get through it together.
As I look around at my large family, I’m awestruck at what we went through to get here. It’s unreal. The waiting, the praying, all the times when it felt like it was NEVER going to happen. Believe me, during that month long stretch in Ghana, there were many times that I thought we weren’t going to get here. Sometimes I see random posts from friends on FB who know of or are working with people who are adopting through AAI. These families are waiting, and waiting and waiting. Sometimes, I know people who are adopting, whether it is through Ghana or not, and they are waiting, and waiting, and waiting.
Today seems a good day to pray for you. I’m praising, as always, the God who sent my children here. He must have a really big plan for them. And, for those of you who wait while feeling hope fade, I’ve been where you are. The feeling fades when you get to hug your children every day. God has a big plan for your children too.
who thinks no child, or family, should have to endure this.
