Perfect sense. I’m glad God has blessed you with “real” children…the ‘unreal’ (as in statues) children are just not as fun….though they are very quiet and virtually no cost to raise!
I pray your kids will be home with you VERY soon!
love you. love your heart!
Ernest and I did not think we were going to have any more bio children. We had talked about adopting domestically after R is home. We have looked into that as well as foster care and both have to wait until our adoption is final. I don’t know that we won’t still do that. That is wild since we had just two for so long.
You have been waiting a long time. I know the days seem to be growing longer. Each day is one day closer to them. I truly cannot wait until the moment we all bring our children home. It will happen. And we will all have peace.
debra is right-each day is one step closer to them! and oh what an amazing time it will be when they arrive!
(i predict more than 4, by the way…!)
You forgot braces. Having just paid for the first set, with kid #2 waiting (im)patiently in the wings for money to fall from the sky… I’m just saying.
WildGirl and I were talking about babies the other day. About how they cry and you have to get up with them in the night and they can’t tell you what’s wrong and they go through a lot of diapers, etc… she said, it’s a good thing we don’t have any, they sound like a lot of work!
Well, since we have 2 birth children and seven adopted……I really get annoyed when people will say to me…..so…which ones are your ‘real’ kids????? Like the other ones are fake! geesh!….sometimes if I’m feeling especially snarky I’ll say…’well, they all are real’….then the person will say…’oh, well, um, well, you know what I mean’….I just give a confused look and let them stumble….ya, I know nasty!
All I can say is never say never. I said NEVER again after Thomas came into our lives 10 years ago, and then wham we jumped back on the adoption train two years ago. Now we are mere days away from bringing home our two Haitian boys and some days I think I am crazy to have 4 kids and some days I am crazy to long to cuddle another baby. Right now, as I lay in bed typing away, the thought of a crying baby in the middle of the night waking my Benadryl induced sleep makes me feel queasy. OHHHHH, but the smell of a sweet baby always makes me want another. but as my mom put it, “my eggs are getting old”.
Agree with the above commentor… never say never :)…
oh and this comment: “It is a miracle of God that we had two more after Deacon. He was happy then and God changed his heart. That
