Not for the faint of heart...

Adoption, that is.

This wait. So difficult sometimes. We had an *almost* baby; but it feels like it slid through our hands like butter.

The situation was not ideal, and was urgent. We found out about it last night. A baby boy born on Wednesday! We contacted our Facilitator, but didn't hear back last night. When we checked in this morning, we found that they already had another family that was working with the birthmother.

We mentally started to make plans - when to leave, what to pack, dreaming of names...While it didn't totally feel like our situation, it is still very disappointing. I am really trying to focus on the fact that this will happen in God's time, with the baby that should be ours, with the birth family that we can be extra family to.

I really wish I could see when - or if - this is going to happen for us. It's been 13 months today. Does anyone  have any words of wisdom?
