A friend asked me recently, “Have you heard anything on adoption front?”
I sighed, “No.”
Turns out our caseworker visited us a few weeks back. As she inspected our home, she confirmed ages, whether we want a boy or girl, etc. All things she should have already known. After a year and a half of waiting, we found this a tiny bit discouraging.
And yet, my friend also said something that gave me hope.
“You’re just going to keep plugging along until God tells you otherwise?”
I hadn’t really thought of this before, but yes, we will keep our house open until God tells us otherwise. He called us into this messy process, and He can call us out of it.
Patience is hard. Waiting is hard. But until God closes the adoption door, we’ll be standing right here, waiting.
