I’ve been having a hard time lately with the adoption process and our increased costs. I am beyond frustrated with the ever changing paperwork and requests. I am starting to feel like I am throwing darts in the dark, just hoping something lands in the right spot. The decisions we are facing feel overwhelming.
So today, I am sharing from my heart as a prospective adoptive parent working through the complicated international adoption process for the first time.
The adoption process is a test.
Adoption is exhausting,
The personal scrutiny seems constant.
Adoption is hard work,
The requests for information are never ending.
Adoption is stressful,
We want to be the best we can possibly be.
Adoption is self-discovery,
The decisions we face require a lot of personal insight and self-doubt.
Adoption is heartbreaking,
To gain a child, someone places a child.
Adoption is paperwork,
A constant flood of questions and answers.
Adoption is a marathon,
The process is constant and ongoing.
Adoption has a light at the end of the tunnel.
Of a child.
Of a complete family.
Adoption is hope.
Adoption is love.
