Adoption Journal – 15

Here’s another entry from my adoption journal.  This journal entry isn’t dated, but it falls right into place in my journal that there is a good chance that I wrote it around the day that Zach was born; but, of course, we had no idea.  <sigh>  Amazing to read it again!

And we wait.  We have no idea how long we will wait.  Yes, the need for families to adopt black children is great, but there is no guarantee that this will be quick.

Will a black birthmom choose a white family to raise her child?

Will a birthmom choose a family who is pregnant to raise her child?

We have pictured the adoption taking place before the birth of our other baby, but that might not be the case.

I have an adoption bracelet that I wear everyday to remind me to pray for our baby (since I can’t feel him/her kick).  However, it is hard to pray not knowing if the baby is even conceived yet or at what stage of pregnancy he/she is in or if it has even already been born.  God knows, of course, and that is a beautiful comfort.

We continue to be filled with peace and confidence about the adoption.  We look so forward to getting our new baby!  Prepare us, Lord!

And prepare us QUICK!  Little did we know that Zach was being born about that time and that we would bring him home in 3 and a half weeks!!  How exciting!

Considering adoption but think you can’t afford it?  Check out here, here, here, and here for information on grants for adoption.
