I’ve been trying to sit down and write this post and the words just don’t seem to come out right.
WE ARE ADOPTING! It is so so exciting, we are excited, family is excited, friends are excited. But somehow when I sit down to write this, excitement doesn’t come out.
It has been a VERY long process. A very emotional process. Lots of highs, lots of lows. We started this process in May but waited to tell anyone until our home study was done. I’m relieved that everyone knows now.
We are now at the point where we are just waiting to hear if we will be picked as an adoptive family for a sibling group. And it is….hard. I find myself getting so excited when they say one thing to become discouraged when they say something else.
I never thought this process would be so emotional before even getting a child(ren) placed in our home. It is a constant up and down. Feelings change by the second.
I so wanted to sit down and write this awesomely excited post about our adoption. But these last couple days have been hard and even though I am excited, somehow it’s not coming out. But I think it’s important to write however I feel. To let people know that adoption is a hard, long, exciting, overwhelming process.
WE ARE EXCITED! I don’t want anyone to think that we aren’t. This process is just…..a process. Every day is something new. There are highs and lows in each day.
The only constant in our adoption is knowing that God is with us. We know He is guiding this adoption and we know that it will go whichever way He wants it to go. It is all in His timing and His hand.
I have some drafts saved that I have been writing throughout this whole process so I will be sharing those throughout the next couple weeks.
