Tomas and I have been so humbled by everyone’s response since announcing our adoption. It’s crazy how much of a community we have and such a blessing to have all of you rallying behind us in this. We definitely don’t take that for granted and truly treasure what a blessing it is.
Since announcing on Monday to you all I feel like I have been so emotional, like at any moment I could cry (and might have). These are happy tears of course, because I really feel so honored that God has placed this on our hearts and we are pursuing a family this way. It’s almost difficult to articulate but I feel like God chose us for some little girl out there and I feel so humbled by it.
So I have never been one of those people that God wakes up in the middle of the night to pray for something (or maybe I just slept through it, *cringe face*) but since we started pursuing adoption from foster care I feel like there will be nights I just can’t fall asleep and I will be feel this nudge to start praying for our daughter. This actually happens a few times a week and I can’t shake it or sleep so I just lay there in bed and pray.
It’s crazy to think she’s out there in the world already and chances are she is probably in a less than ideal situation (ugh as I type this tears stream), so I do feel a connection to her already and since I can’t physically do anything in this moment I have to pray. Thankfully, it is one of the most powerful things that we can do. I know that God is taking care of this little girl no matter what the situation is and until she is in our arms, we will pray.
