Sometimes I want to stamp my feet with frustration.
How can I get him to see?
Why won’t he see things my way?
Why does he have to be so practical?
Please God touch his heart like you have touched mine.
I know I’m wrong for praying for his heart to change but I’m impatient. I see all the photos of children waiting for forever parents and I want to call them home.
My heart isn’t practical, it’s passionate.
My mind isn’t organised, it’s open.
I’m sure I’m called to adopt another child yet life doesn’t seem to be following this pathway.
Please God give me patience or direction.
I know you have plans for me, help me to understand them please.
Maybe patience is the lesson I have to learn.
It may be a long lesson.
The news has been filled with stories regarding the fact that adoption has hit a 10 year low. With prospective parents being put off by the rigorous checks and the extensive time periods.
The truth is that yes both of these things do happen and yes there are problems that need to be changed within the system.
But let’s put that all aside and concentrate on what is beyond the paperwork beyond the inconvenience.
The children, the innocents that need forever families.
If you dream of adoption please don’t be stopped by the obstacles that seem to be set before you. Look forward to the time when the paperwork has ended and the family begins.
Don’t give up, your future son or daughter are worth it.
