Reality Check

Beginnings are scary.

The first step of a journey is always exciting, but as we begin this new path, there are also many fears that come into play.

Will we be good parents?

How will we ever be able to afford adoption?

How long will this process take?

What if our child doesn’t like us?

But then must we remind ourselves: What the Lord begins, He will finish.

He will teach us to be the parents we need to be.  He will provide the funds for our adoption. He is in charge of the timetable (He already has taught us this one time and time again in this journey so far.) And He has chosen our child for us. The one that we are supposed to raise. He will mold us and prepare us through this path to parenthood. We just have to trust and take the steps one at a time.

Step one: Submit our application.

One thing at a time.

“being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete [it] until the day of Jesus Christ;” Phil 1:6

  1. Your comment, “what if our child doesn’t like us” resonated with me. Even though its a little absurd, its such a parent question!
