Discouraged. Impatient. Sad. Confused. Desperate.
Yet still clinging on to hope. Lots and lots of hope. And faith.
But if you see me and ask about our adoption, the wait or our numbers, please understand that if I stumble through my words or my eyes well with tears, it's not because you said something wrong or I don't want to talk about it. I do want to talk about it and I love talking about it. It's just that it's hard. Really, really hard.
Despite it being hard, we know God is faithful.
While we can't yet understand the reason's why it's taking so long, we know that one day, just as it was when Gabe came home, the tears, the fears and the hurt will all be worth it.
Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm,
for God can be trusted to keep his promise."
- Hebrews 10:23
