Waiting to be matched with a child can plague us with worries. Shifting our focus from uncertainty to the truth of God and his goodness gives us reassurance that he’s working his plan even when we can’t see it yet.
Life doesn't always turn out the way we planned, but God is near and He knows our hearts better than we do. A story of adoption and the God who DOES see it all.
Adoption 101 : Where to Begin? So perhaps you’re ready to move forward. Maybe you’re thinking, Yes! My heart is ready, and my husband and I believe we should adopt. What now?
Adoption 101 : Should We Adopt? How to know if you might be ready for this big adventure post infertility and what to consider.
We did not understand what God was doing and honestly to this day I don’t understand the reason it all happened, BUT we had to trust God was in control. And truly when I look back at it all…from our sorrow new joy did spring, out of sin grace did lift its voice, in our complete weakness HE gave us strength to fight, and so, there was hope in the night.
We did all the research you can imagine on agencies, countries, fees, timelines, and more. But when it came down to it, we decided on an international adoption for one main (and very profound) reason: we didn’t want any baby mama drama.
That’s right. Judge me if you like. The main reason we chose to adopt internationally was because we felt that adopting domestically might open the door for a baby’s mom to come “back” into our child’s life and mess up the good thing we had goin’ on. Baby mama drama, as Wes called it. No, thank you.
I know. Totally lame and shallow reason. That’s why I’m writing this blog about it, 7 years later.
