I am sure other mothers who want to adopt can relate. I really want to adopt I know it will when or if it is suppose too. I can't help it though I am getting really down today. I long to hold our little one. My heart is aching. Other mothers who want to adopt when you feel sad what do you do. How do you make yourself feel okay?

When we made the decision to adopt, we knew it would probably take a while. We're going thru CPS and have been 3 years in so far (including the time it took to get licensed). During the times we were waiting for the next "curve-ball" to pass, we'd have people tell us that the baby that was going to need us hadn't been born yet, and that has been true 3 times. (We started in 2006, and have had 2 children born in 2007 & one in 2008 (plus one older child from 2004)). Two of them have moved on, we currently have one in care. Sometimes in foster care, the children need you for a just a little while and sometimes forever. We are hoping for a forever child soon. We don't regret the ones who have left as we did what we were supposed to do for as long as we were needed to do it. We wait for God's plan for our family. It keeps us from getting ahead of ourselves.
