Whew, I have heard a lot of that phrase lately. Every time I tell someone that we are adopting and how long we expect it to take its like they all have been given a script.
You tell them the answer and they either say "OH",or "wow". But in my heart I am saying it is so worth the wait. I feel very blessed that I have the opportunity to travel to Haiti to visit and learn all about my kids homeland. I feel very blessed to take loads of food & medicine down to the orphanage and make sure my kids and all their friends will be able to have food and medicine until we can go back in a few months to love them. I do wish it was faster but I need to look at it as a great blessing that Maybe there is a great reason it takes awhile, so we as parents can travel there and take care of the orphanage and see what we can do as a strong group to help a country and people that are in despair and needs so much. There is a meaning to every road we travel down in our life. Haiti has a special place in my heart!
