Comparing Adoption to Pregnancy

Its actually Thursday, February 25th at 2AM...hehe?

You can weigh the worries of adoption and even try to compare them to pregnancy...except when you're pregnant, and nesting you're only worried about the birth..the whole time, the baby is safely nestled in your wombe and you can feel her. With adoption on the other hand, the worries never end, and the baby is not close...I can't feel her, I don't know if she is warm tonight or full?

It's a true testament of faith. God you are my ears & eyes.

heavenly father, please watch over my little girl, and keep her safe. We're almost there, visas are in..we're so close now.

I think it is safe to say she is warm and full. Don't you remember the layers of clothes and chubby cheeks :) I'm only kidding. I know how you feel. Thinking about her all the time and just wondering, never knowing for sure that she is happy and healthy. Let the countdown begin....

Yes, my pregnancies were filled with worries actually, and this adoption has been very hard as well. And I'm afraid its been very ahrd on our little miss as well :o( Thankfully most children are home with their forever families much quicker than our adoption has gone. Please let our children, so far away, be cared for as they need to be.
