Christmas hurts when you’re waiting for kids. This year, my wildest dreams came true and I am beyond grateful for all our blessings. However, this Christmas, I can’t help but think of you.
To all those awaiting parents who are still waiting for that call:
I’m praying that you get the call as soon as your worker gets back from holidays. I’m hoping that you are called to a meeting in early spring to discuss a possible match. I hope that you can believe that while your future seems like one big question mark with no real idea what’s at the end - it’s coming. As soon as it happens you will look back and say “oh that’s how it was meant to be, I was right on track the whole time, I just needed a little faith that what was supposed to happen was going to happen whether I tried to control it or not”.
My gift for you this Christmas is to remember that you are not alone. Your feelings are not wrong or weird; they are normal. Do lots of self-care – join a Facebook chat, deactivate your Facebook for the day, cry if you need to cry. I’ll be thinking of you.
