Update #6 – Adoption isn’t easy

You know, no one ever said that adoption would be easy. Actually, people said it would be really really hard. And I sort of believed them, but quite honestly, I thought our adoption would be different.   And now, can I just tell you…adoption is really really hard.

The last month and a half have been a whirlwind…here is kind of how it went. A match, a meeting, a ton of preparation, a plan, a name, a nervous birth mom, a week of texting with the birth mom, a baby, a mom’s change of mind, a failed adoption, anger, tears, a reminder that God is still in control and still good and a realization that that wasn’t the child God intend for us.

I’m sick of being a downer when it comes to news like this, so I am choosing to stay positive about it and so totally hopeful and anxious to learn why God wanted us to live the last month or so like we did/have.

Our wait continues knowing and trusting the Lord that He will put our child in our arms someday…hopefully sooner rather than later.

And on a positive note, look how adorable that bunting looks in the nursery!!

  1. This happen to my daughter’s friend and a week or so later they received a call about a mother in a hospital who was ready to deliver and had chosen them. Their little girl is now over a year old. The Lord has the perfect little one for your family.

  2. Adoption is hard just because there is soo much emotion involved on both sides. The birth mom or parents if they are both involved & of course on the adoptive side, you wait & wait & wait. It really does come down to what the Good Lord has in His plan & HE seldom lets us know what He has in mind. Why does the turmoil have to go along with something that can be so w
    onderful, there again ……
    There are really no answers to any of those questions except Faith~ This will come thru for you & I will continue to keep you in my prayers for a sooner rather than later resolution!!

  3. Hi Meghan,
    Soooo very sorry that you have to go through this! I join the group of your friends who know someone who went through this as well. In fact, our friend and my nephew went through this several times. Endurance produces good fruit and strengthens our foundation in our loving Saviour. But it is quite difficult. You are growing in your understanding of your deep dependence on Him. I pity those who never really learn it. He is actually drawing you closer and revealing more of Himself in this painful process. I have come to believe that our most painful times apply to Pauls exhortation to “fight the good fight” because difficulties test and reveal what we really believe about God. It becomes an opportunity for growth if we cooperate. He loves you, He is on your side, He will never leave you or forsake you. He is totally tuned into you!
    Love you,
