Every door I come to...

There's one thing for sure that the adoption process has taught me and that is every door I come to I knock to see if it will open.  The Lord knows just what He is doing and I've learned that even if a door seems to open, it may quickly shut...mostly for reasons I never know or understand. 

Adoption has opened many doors with strangers, which I love.  I can be anywhere in the city or country for the matter (not that we've traveled much since becoming parents!) and have an instant connection with adoptive moms because they are with their adopted child(ren) and suddenly there's great opportunity for an open door of conversation.  It's absolutely wonderful!  I get to hear great stories, advice and tips about a variety of things and best of all I get to share Jesus and how He brought us our beautiful daughter.  If you've seen our daughter's picture you know exactly what I'm talking about.  She is an absolute blessing everywhere we go and to every person she meets.  Her smile is contagious, her laugh so sweet and if you are lucky enough you may get the sweetest and most loving hug if she lets you hold her.  I love adoption and the world that has opened to me that was always there, I just didn't realize how big that world was until I turned the nob and opened the door.  Boy, am I glad we knocked and opened as we can't imagine what life would be like without our precious baby girl.  There's something very special about the connection between adoptive moms...we just get each other, our journeys, our hardships without even saying a word about it

Now as we wait for Baby "M", I dream and wonder what he or she will be like, when they will be born, what nationality the Lord wants to spice up our family with this time, whose life will be impacted by this gift of life that will come to us and on and on...but for now...we do my least favorite part...WE WAIT!
