I have said many times that God has been in this from the very start. We have so been quick to have everything happen. But I would like to clarify something here.
If your adoption take 6 months or 6 years….God is with you in that adoption.
If your adoption takes you longer because you dont have the money…God is with you in that adoption.
If your adoption takes 7 weeks, God is with you in that adoption.
God has a plan….his adoption of us and our adoption of others.
If God isnt a big part of your life and you adopt..he will show you his face.
Here is a letter I recieved from a complete stranger 2 days ago…I am keeping it anonymous.
I hope you don’t think this is too creepy, but I just had to send you an email! I am a fellow adoptive mom of a little girl born in Korea. My husband and I brought *edited* home from Korea in August of 2009. We finalized her adoption in mid February 2010 and I started checking the waiting child photo listings soon after that. I came across your daughter, Mia Grace’s photo when I started looking at the listings and I fell in love with her. I thought she was such a beautiful little girl and she looked so sweet. From the blurb that they had about her on the CHSFS website, her needs seemed manageable to me. She was born within a month of my daughter though (*edited* birthday is 10/10/08), so I knew the chances of being able to bring that little sweetheart into my family were slim.
In March 2010, I contacted *edited* at CHSFS and asked her if they would consider allowing us to look at the file and *edited* got back to me and said that *edited* and this little girl would be too close in age and they really didn’t think that would be best. I was kind of sad, but in my heart I knew it was for the best. For the next year, I would check the website and sure enough her little picture was still there. It broke my heart to see this child waiting on the photolisting. I am not a religious person at all, but there was this part of me that felt such a strong need to pray for this little girl and her forever family to find each other. I don’t think I have ever felt that way in my life and I am not sure why I felt such so strongly about praying for her. To this day, I cannot explain it. Needless to say, I was elated when I got to see “Matched” on her photolisting picture a few months ago. I was even more excited when I stumbled upon your blog (I don’t even know how I found it) and realized that your family was this child’s forever family.
I really hope I didn’t creep you out with my story – that was so not my intention. I guess what I really want to say to you is that I am so happy that you and your family were able to bring Mia Grace home!!! I wish you the best during your transition and I really look forward to following your blog. Adoption is a true miracle!!!
Now that is God…
