When we began our adoption adventure, I had numerous misconceptions – beginning with “this shouldn’t take long!” Our son came home 18 long months later. For some, 18 months is less than half their wait. Some parents wait years for their precious child(ren).
Wherever you are in your wait – whether you have just begun, or have been at this for years – I want to encourage you, today. Waiting is not easy, but it is purposeful. This season of waiting isn’t the intermission. God doesn’t set your situation aside, working in some abstract place while you develop patience. No, rather, the wait is an intricate part, a time specifically designed by God, for us to draw close to Him.
