Comments on: 17 Months on the Wait List http://hornes.org/2012/04/17-months-on-the-wait-list/ Tue, 22 Jul 2014 20:14:12 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.9.1 By: Jean http://hornes.org/2012/04/17-months-on-the-wait-list/#comment-72249 Sun, 22 Apr 2012 00:20:53 +0000 http://www.hornes.org/?p=4148#comment-72249 Thanks for this post. This wait is so hard – but you’re right, as hard as it is for waiting families, it’s harder on the kiddos. I so hope things reach a new normal and we can all more or less know when our kids will be coming home. I’ll keep your family in our thoughts and prayers while we all wait!

All the best,
(S-DC family on FBI)

I should reiterate that as hard as OUR part of the wait is in all this, the true heartache for us right now is that the longer these adoptions take, the fewer children ultimately come home. There are kids waiting and waiting in care, because paperwork takes forever to be processed. That breaks my heart, and it has nothing to do with me not getting what I want, and everything to do with hoping these little ones will be brought home to families. One of my biggest prayers is that the process will be streamlined and perhaps improved so that more children who are in need of families will have the ability to be adopted.

Our actual adoption process went very quickly, but the years leading up to it were very, very long. I think it’s impossible for long seasons of waiting not to change us. And I think as Christians, God often uses the waiting to change us into being more like Him. The pain we feel while we wait gradually leads us to more joy, more hope, and more rest, not because we got what we wanted, but because we know God better and can rest more fully in Him.

I’m praying that God will bring your daughter to you very soon and that He will help you trust in Him while you wait.

As Jamison would say,

May He comfort those who mourn, be close to those who are brokenhearted, and place the lonely in families.”

Amen to this.
