Waiting with the song of the day
Today's song of the day describes so perfectly how every adoptive family feels about the children they are waiting for, hoping for, praying for, searching for. When asked "Why are you trying to adopt?" so many of us will answer, "We just feel like someone is missing." And we will wait, pray and search for the children meant for our families...because when we find them and their birthfamilies...we find a piece of ourselves, that missing piece of the puzzle. That's how we feel about it, at least.
So here's to those of us who are waiting! Waiting for "the call" from our caseworker. Waiting for contact from an amazing birth family we just "click" with. Waiting for babies to be born, papers to be signed. Waiting...for our children.
