Adoption is unpredictable. All of the “training” you get during the process tells you to expect the unexpected.
Hope for the best and keep the worst in the back of your mind. The worst can come in many forms over the course of preparing our hearts, homes, and merging lives to create a new family dynamic.
While we wait for news that our papers have been submitted and we can head to court for our little boy, we received devastating news about some friends of ours that are on the journey. The announcement they hoped to make stating they were adding a little girl to their home is just not going to happen right now.
I can’t imagine the sense of loss they are experiencing so I’m writing this post and asking that you pray for them. There is no sure path in adoption but that doesn’t make the pain any less real.
Please lift them up in prayer as they trust God with revealing whatever His plan is.
Thank you so much!
