Waiting…

That’s all we know .
For years we
waited for you to grow in my belly..
Patiently knowing that the seed would be planted and you would grow
….from our flesh and dreams, a child you would become.

But God had other plans for you
….and for us.
We had to
wait
You had to
wait to grow..

We know this now...
and so we
wait.

God chose another woman where you will grow for us
She will become your first mother
Her flesh will sustain you as you grow
Her heart will teach you of love
Before you are ever born

God told this woman, your first Mother that she too has to
wait..
..wait for the right family to be there for you.

With a heavy heart she too will make the choice to
wait
To
wait to parent and wait for us…
To come together to be your forever family
Your Mommy and Daddy.

So Across continents…we
wait
Across oceans…we pray
Across time…we know

You are
waiting too..

The seed has been planted…
Our dreams, they will grow.

Her belly..
Our Heart.

We are all
waiting child..
For you to become.

Please
wait patiently our child
We are coming
We are
waiting

Yes, we know..
You are waiting too….

-Mommy

Thinking of you while you wait. Thank you for your thoughts left for us on our blog. Your time will soon come to be a mommy. It will be a challenge but fun at the same time.
This is a wonderful poem for your child who will be in your arms very soon.

I'm sure that your referral is soon in coming, Ann. And, regardless of the timing, you'll look at your child and none of that waiting will matter -- it will all make sense. And I can see from your poem that you get that. That's the mystery of it all. Peace and patience to you...
