Life is hard, it is never smooth sailing. I loath people who think that if it isn't easy you should just stop. If that were the case we would never have plumbing, electricty, cars,and I would hate to think of what the world would be like if people didn't stand up to their oppressors. Do you know how many failures, heartache and disapointment they experienced because what they were doing mattered to them, how many people probably said to them they should just give up?
To those of you who insist, hint and down right commend the process I am taking I pity you for I think you must have never taken a stand in life. Where is your courage? Where do you stand in the storms? Cowering under a shelter watching others struggles and smirk to yourself saying "that is their lot."
as you watch others offer aid to those in need.
This is my stand. This is my storm, and I will venture out and embrace the hardship of adoption, for it isn't for the faint of heart. Adoption isn't about finding a perfect child, it is about finding the right family for a child. There is a lot of hurt, and heartbreak that will take years of healing that adoptive parents need to be prepared for, and deal with the emotional scarring that will last a life time.
We are looking a child who our family would be right for. It would be selfish to do otherwise.
