As of today, we have been gazing at pictures of our beautiful Amelia for exactly a month. It has been heaven. When we started the adoption process nearly 16 months ago, (yes, SIXTEEN MONTHS!!!) the plan was to receive our referral LAST SPRING, and then travel SHORTLY AFTER being matched with our child.
Um, in case you didn’t notice, things haven’t gone as planned.
When I think about how far that original plan has derailed, I can get pretty sad and frustrated. That is, UNTIL I realize that, had we had it our way, we would’ve been matched with a different child.
No thank you.
Amelia is OUR baby girl, and that is for sure! I’ll take a thousand delays to get OUR daughter over the fast track to “just any child.” God is working His will, of that I am sure!
(Now, will one of you please remind me of that the next time I get sad and frustrated!?)
