We have been on the waitlist to adopt for 3 months yesterday!
3 months waiting...3 months could be the age of our baby girl when she is referred to us. She will be between 6 weeks and 12 months old at the time of referral.
It scares me to think that as long as this three months has felt for me, our baby girl could potentially be motherless for three months, or plenty more. Especially if we are referred a sibling set. We don't know what her/their story will be, but if thought about too much, it is painful for my heart to know of the losses that will be experienced for us, for the birthparents, and for our girl/ies.
I pray that God continues to equip us to carry the losses and to give Him glory through redemption.
We are 3 months closer to the start of our family!
