I told my family I would always wonder if I just gave up. I did not want that on my heart especially after hosting and bonding with him. International adoption is an emotional rollercoaster, incredible expense, requires years of tenacious persistence, and while all that is going on, it is a complete faith journey with no guarantee. Sounds like parenthood!
When I recently received "the call" of all calls, those of you who know me may be surprised to learn I did not jump for joy. Rather, my head dropped and I was completely silent in the moment. Confident words, "You WILL have him home before Christmas" resulted in springs of tears and...reality.
If adoption is on your heart or if your heart has been on my adoption, will you please add my family to your prayer list &/or partner with us through a tax deductible donation to fund the final adoption expense? Financial payments for adoption are required in hefty bits at certain phases. I am near the finish line including final costs.
God's answer is "Yes and Amen".
Thank you for helping to bring my little guy home to bedtime stories, safe arms, and opportunities. I will be happy to post pictures as soon as we finish legal proceedings.
We are very happy for you and specially for Brayan!!!
