So, as usual, several people have been asking how the adoption is going. The answer: ? We’re still waiting. Our profile has been shown a couple times (one turned down because it was “too close”, one we turned down with some concerns about the particular situation, and one in NJ that we’re awaiting a response on). And that’s the update.
I’ve been learning a lot about waiting, patience, and even myself. Doing my best to take one day at a time. Most days I find I’m okay with the waiting. I enjoy spending time with Dante and Jeff, knowing that our time as “the Burkholder THREE” is limited. I know that our child is out there somewhere and God knows the perfect time, place, and situation for us. I’m learning to trust God in what HE knows to be the best child for us, despite my personal disappointment or frustration with the process. I’m learning about living in the present, taking one day at a time, and seeing the beauty in all people and the world around me.
Other days, the waiting seems insanely long. But isn’t that the way with anything?
Anyone wanna come help me get the nursery ready while we’re waiting? 😀 At least it’ll keep us busy.
Thanks for your continued love, prayers, and support!
