3 No’s in 3 Days

I don't want to sound like I'm whining, but here is an adoption update. I go back and forth on what to do/say about these kinds of weeks. I don't want to come across as negative or having a bad attitude about all of this. I am confident that this will work out in God's time…but that doesn't necessarily make these kinds of weeks easier. I also want to be honest so that others reading this have an idea of what waiting for an adoption is like and I want it for my own memories. Our profile has been shown 3 times in 3 days. All 3 were no's. I just got the email notification on the last one a few minutes ago.

These kinds of weeks really shake my faith – I wonder if we are doing the right thing, will this ever work out, did we miss God's voice somewhere along the way, are we not meant to have any more kids….these days/weeks are so hard. I don't know the answer to any of those questions so we just keep doing what we are doing until we know otherwise….

I could say a lot of bad words for you right now. I'm so sorry, Crystal. 3 at once. Dang it. That's enough to drive a waiting family to the brink. I think you are next in line for some self indulgence...pedi this weekend??

I know nothing I say will help. But I do know it sucks and you have every right to be frustrated.
