We started praying for our next child months ago...Through those months God has led us to pray for an older child. Our hearts are wide open. We'll see what God does. :D

This poem was on a friends blog. I needed to post it. It speaks volumes to us.

The Waiting Child
by Debbie Bodie

I saw you meet your child today
You kissed your baby joyfully
And as you walked away with her
I played pretend you'd chosen me.

I'm happy for the baby, yet
Inside I'm aching miserably
I want to plead as you go by,
"Does no-one want a child of three?"

I saw you meet your child today
In love with her before you met
And as I watched you take her out
I knew it wasn't my turn yet.

I recognize you from last year!
I knew I'd seen your face before!
But you came for a second babe.
Does no-one want a child of four?

I saw you meet your child today
But this time there was something new
A nurse came in and took MY hand
And then she gave my hand to you.

Can this be true? I'm almost six!
And there are infants here you see?
But then you kissed me and I knew
The child you chose this time was me.


  1. Thanks a lot becca! I'm bawling my eyes out! Love you and your heart. Not sure what God is going to do with our family and adoption but i'm gonna keep praying!
