Our adoption update from PSB
Every email from PSB always makes my heart flutter. I'll see the subject headline and wonder, Is this it? Do we have a match . . . Does this bring us a little closer to bringing our child home? And usually it brings us just a tiny pinch closer, nothing more. I suppose that's par for the process. Many times, A. & I talk about -- if we do this a second time, maybe we'll go domestic. At work, I am constantly reminded how many children are in the foster care system, and while the goal is to reunite them with their birth parents, for so many others, adoption is also a wonderful opportunity to experience a loving home . . . and that, I have no doubt we can give them. Though A. and I would have to be prepared to accept all of the challenges that come along with children who have memories of their birth families and most likely all of the terrible situations that they may have experienced. That goes without saying as that may be the case for the son or daughter we bring home from the Philippines too.
I've got a couple of family friends waiting to give birth at the end of the month and early February and have also heard the lovely news of others expecting in the late spring or early summer. Here's to welcoming their little ones into a world full of warmth and peace . . .
