My heart is singing a lullaby in minor key. It never stops. It is the song of my heart as we wait to adopt Amelia. While it’s sound is mournful, it’s only lyric is one of praise: “Hallelujah.”
We trust God in this wait. We praise Him for it. He is taking His time to compose a symphony. A beautiful song, like a meaningful life story, takes time to build up to its masterful climax.
Amelia’s song is not some cheap commercial jingle. It is a part of God’s Magnum Opus. In minor key and in major, we praise our great Composer.
We wait for Amelia, but ultimately, we wait for our God. We long for our daughter, but above all, we ache to see the beauty of our Creator through the song that He writes with her life.
We are in love with a daughter we have not touched, and a Father we have not seen. But make no mistake — they are both real, and they are both the cry of our hearts.
And with outstretched arms
I will sing a melody
And my beating heart
Will pour out a symphony
Hallelujahs in the morning
Hallelujahs in the night
I will wait for You
As long as I have life
