the waiting game

As I wait and wait and wait, here is what I want my children to know:

*We are so excited for you to join our family.

*Your brothers and sisters have been planning your arrival for some time now.

*They have a whole list of things they want to teach you and show you.

*At this current moment, they are fighting over who gets each of you in their rooms.

*You are wanted, and you are loved.We have prayed and worked exactly one year now to find you. We hope we find you soon.

It does not matter that we are not totally prepared for you. It does not matter that I am still anxious about all the little things…having the right size bed or car seat or clothes or vehicle does not really matter. Sure, they are things that the planner in me thinks about, obsessively sometimes. But none of these matters are so important that they would keep us from you.We know that you will come at the right time and in the right way because we have opened our hearts to receiving you.


  1. So these kids have already been in foster care and are looking to be placed permanently? 5 in one day! That is incredible! It makes my heart hurt for them. Good luck we will pray for it to all go well. 🙂
