I wonder what happened to the lady and the baby she offered us two years ago July 27th, opening the door for our adoption journey.
I wonder if the Facebook comment that IBESR asked agencies to hold off on charts for a while, so they can deal with the 900+ already occupying desk space is true.
I wonder where our chart spent the last six months in IBESR...and pray it's not lost behind a file cabinet somewhere.
I wonder when we'll get our referral notice… next month, next year? Praying not more than three years like one family as that would bring us dangerously close to the age limit.
Mostly, I wonder about our children...
I wonder so much about you. Names. Ages. Personalities. Health. History.
What do you think about? What do you remember? What do you need?
What are your days like? Who do you care about? Where are you living?
Are you little enough to only focus on eating and having fun?
Do you long for things you do not understand and cannot name?
Do you wonder if you'll be kept together as a family, or if you'll loose your last blood ties?
Do you wonder when the other children leave with a new family if it will ever happen to you?
Do you want to go back home? Return to the life that once was yours?
Do you go to school? Do you long to see the world or just to have a place to call your own?
Do you have friends? Or hang out at the edge of a crowd wanting to belong?
Does someone dry your tears or do they drop unnoticed? Or have you given up on tears instead relying on an inner strength to bury the pain.
Do you go to bed at night tired after a good day of playing or lay awake at night hungry and in pain?
Do you know Jesus loves you? Do you learn to praise Him in song and to bring Him your needs in prayer?
Do you pray for a new family? Do you pray for us?
