As you wait on an adoption, there isn’t anything you can do but pray.
Well, you can pray or go insane. I choose the former.
I pray that God protects my baby while he or she is growing.
I pray that this child knows that they were wanted….and chosen.
My prayer is that this child knows that even though they didn’t grow in my belly, I thought about them, I prayed for them, loved them, and fell deeply in love with them before they were even born.
I pray that the birthmother makes good choices. Although I have no control over those choices, I pray that God puts doctors and people in her life to help her.
I pray for the emotions of the birthmother. I pray that she is able to handle the loss.
I pray that God allows me to get to know the birthmother so I can answer questions for my child.
I pray that God allows me to speak freely about adoption to my child, answer questions, help fill in the gaps, and heal the hurt that comes from adoption.
I pray that God protects my heart for the journey ahead. I pray that I’m ready for whatever challenges, obstacles, or heartache I may face.
I pray that God brings me and my husband closer together during this process.
More than anything, I pray that our child comes to know the Lord Jesus and that our lives and our adoption will glorify HIM.
Adoption isn’t easy. It is painful and trying. However, God has shown us over and over that this is the path He has for us.
God is so good and so sweet.
I am finding more and more that my plans don’t compare to the riches of His plan!
Will you pray with us as we wait?
