I was having a conversation about adoption tonight with a dear friend. She is also an adoptive mom and it's always refreshing to talk with someone who REALLY gets it.
I think I'm reaching the point in this process where I'm questioning whether or not it is actually happening. Like maybe I'm just dreaming that we are adopting. Maybe it's all just a very unpleasant figment of my imagination. The weeks go by and it's almost like you have to disconnect because you just can't fathom that you have no news yet again.
I did, however, have my first real dream about Mercy. She was sitting in my lap and I was braiding her hair. Her hair looked really good and I was doing it like an old pro (thus, how I knew it was a dream...ha ha). I could hear her laughing and see her smiling.
I pray that some day this adoption dream comes true. Lord, let it be!
