Is she hungry? Is our baby hungry? I wonder if she is afraid. I wonder if she will ever feel how much God loves her. What kind of pain, fear, or guilt will lead her to abandon the baby she carries for nine months? Or what kind of poverty leads to conditions where so many die in childbirth, while we in America deal with that rarely? Will she ever know that she doesn’t have to worry about this child’s future? Will she know how much love there already is in this world for that precious little baby?
I’ve realized that the process of international adoption is already changing me. I see the world as a small place. People who once were nothing like me are now very similar to my family. I hope God will use this time in our lives to open my eyes to see the world as He does.
