It has been months since I last posted….oops!
I have been reminding myself for months to log on here and update you all!
Summer has literally FLOWN by and we have lived so much. I honestly cannot cram all that we have done the past few months into this post. We’ve had tons of family time, played outside a LOT, spent a few weekends at the lakes, flew to a beautiful wedding in Southern California and have been able to volunteer tons of hours on things that I love.
Living life….not putting it on hold. This is how I get through the adoption wait.
This girl right here keeps me pretty busy. Love!!! She gives me hope and the tenderness for adoption.
Recently I have had many people ask about our adoption journey and where we are in finding a child. The answer is….we are still waiting. The wait is so hard when you sit down and let your mind wander “there”. You know that place. The place where you think about how unfair life is and how there is no end in sight. But then,something wakes me up and I am reminded of all that I have to be thankful for. Through this wait I have been able to live and live with joy. I choose to be thankful and remind myself of everything that God has provided for us. He has provided and will continue to provide.
Throughout the last year we have had a few phone calls about possible adoptions and none of them have gone further than that initial phone call. Some would consider that to be a huge disappointment. Several years ago, that kind of disappointment would have gotten the best of me. Through our many years of infertility and Emerson’s adoption story, we have learned so much. We have chosen to see those moments as a reminder that God has not forgotten us. You have not forgotten either. Thank you so much for your prayers and any connections that you may have that could lead us to a child in need of a home.
Ways you can help us in our journey:
Pray for our future birth mother and child (we want an open adoption so we pray for mama as much as baby).
Pray for us to continue to wait well and learn all that we can through this process.
If you know of any situations where a mother is considering adoption placement and you feel led to mention us, please do!
Thanks for checking in on us!
