The other side of the climb...

We are coming up on month eighteen of the 30-month contract with our adoption agency. We have not had any interviews, let alone a placement. I must admit, I am discouraged, although I have suspected for some time now that we will finish out our contract without receiving a placement. Sometimes, I think you just know deep down in your heart. Stepping back, and looking at things from a distant perspective, we have finished the climb, and we are coming down the other side of the mountain. Over the half-way mark. Less time left than what has already passed. Why is this the path we are on? I am not certain. I wonder if God brought us this way to prepare me for my future career as a counselor by teaching me about hopelessness. Not that I do not have HOPE, because I do. I have Jesus. I do understand intensely, though, what it feels like.

Perhaps it is time for us to set aside this venture of parenthood...

As honest as I know how to be,

Living in His JOY, HOPE, and PEACE...

I know...wish there was something I could say. Sometimes, though, nothing works. Keep feeling what you're feeling and hoping you don't give up the journey towards being parents!

Don't give up! Sometimes things happen when you least expect them.

My BFF has joined the Foster mentoring program here in our area. She can't have children so she decided to do this. She gets matched this month with a child. She is so excited and I'm excited for her. It sounds really fun!
