After hurrying around to get all the paperwork, the back ground checks done, the blog started, and the home study completed, is now time to hurry up and wait. For some the adoption process can be very quick and for others it takes a lot more time. This is a time that can be full of anxiety, hope, relentless checking of your email, and just flat out dying to hear from a potential birth mother!
One of the hardest things during this time is the wait. While being anxiously engaged with completing all the necessary tasks can be invigorating because it feels like things are getting done and you are getting close to your end goal. For it all to stop and feel like you are sitting on your hands can be very frustrating.
On the other hand it can be a bit of a relief when you think that you have done all you can do and that it is in the Lord’s hands. It allows you to put your faith more fully in him and not worry about the things that you can’t control.
I believe that through adoption or through having your own biological children, either way, a baby will join your family in the lords time, but we must do all we can to help that happen, because the lord does require action for us to be able to receive our desired blessings.
