I miss our baby this week. I feel a hole, a longing in my heart for our adopted child. Missing someone you don’t know is an odd feeling. On a day when my three children have exhausted me, frustrated me to no end, and tempted me to cry (or scream), missing a child I don’t yet know seems illogical–nonsensical even. But I do.
I long to hold our baby, to feel him in my arms. I long to see her face. I long to let my adopted child know how much he or she is wanted.
And so I pray. I pray for my child’s safety. I pray my child’s birthmother will make wise choices and that she will know that she is loved. I pray that our hearts will be prepared for the joys and sorrows that come with adoption. I pray that God will show Himself mighty in this painful situation. I pray that He will bring our baby home soon.
And I pray that I will have the strength to wait patiently and faithfully.
Please pray with me.
