his guitar strums
and inspires meditation
like autumn's rainfall
and a poetic exchange with Rumi
We're hopeful that 2012 will be our year. Yet another staff change at PSB (our agency), our new contact person, B., definitely seems more accessible and willing to keep us posted even when there may be no new updates. We recently learned that two families are ahead of us in the child match process. Given that we are open to accepting a three- to six-year old and that A. & I are both Filipino American, there is a chance that we might jump ahead of the two families ahead of us. But of course, no guarantees. No adoption agency would offer such a guarantee. In the meantime, for self preservation I tell myself that just maybe, we'll get our match . . . last quarter . . . 2012. Until then, the wait continues . . . and I pray discerningly with an acoustic heart.
