Being Real

Looking at the blog today, I realize I have not posted anything for nearly a month. A lot has happened in the past month, so I could tell you that I have just been too busy, but a more accurate explanation would be this adoptive momma’s blogpost.

Dawn has captured the feelings associated with this stage of the adoption process beautifully and I want to share it to help others understand what we are experiencing.

At the moment we feel so weary. Everything we do makes us think of the son that is missing from our home – playing with Annaliese and wondering what it will be like to play as a family of 4, buying groceries and wondering if we actually need a gallon of milk or if we will get a call today saying we need to leave in a few days, singing/hearing a worship song that reminds us of the greatness of God but falling to our knees questioning if He hears our cries – and it is hard.

Although we know in our heads that God is in the control, our hearts are having a difficult time catching up.

Please continue to pray for our family during this time of unsettledness.
