Thursday 13

Thirteen Things I am scared about in the adoption process

1….It will become so overwhelming we will quit!
2. Finances.That we wont have the money at the right time
3.Paperwork will not arrive in time
4.That the house will not be ready in time
5.Friends will not be accepting of this
6.That my passion will for this will decrease
7.That I will do what I want and not listen to God. This one scares me most of all
8.That we aren't ready
9. That I will not keep in contact with the families I have met
10.That the wait time for referrals will continue to increase
I really cant come up with 13 this week. These are fears. I have given them to God, but they still stay with me..I know that it will work out according to His will. Thanks for the encouragment and prayers!

I think you have the right idea in keeping faith in God and listening to your heart. You will do just fine and will be thrilled with the support you get along the way.

Amy, I haven't walked the road of adoption, so I can't fully understand your fears. But I have faced some very similar ones as we sought treatment to be able to have children. I have found great help, understanding and support at Hannah's Prayer Community Forum. You can share your story with women who have walked a similar path. For me many of the ladies there are closer than people I see everyday, because they 'get it'. There is a forum section for families that are adopting. If you are interested, visit to read more and see if you would like to sign up.
