"Don't get your hopes up, but be prepared!"...

Those are the not so soothing words of our social worker in an email I got this afternoon. A little ironic given my last post! Oh you know, it was nothing major, just a "by the way if the birth parents do pick you, the baby will need to be picked up that evening" kind of email. If I had a nickel for every time I got one of those...oh wait, that's right I'VE NEVER GOTTEN AN EMAIL LIKE THAT!
Then I started to think....God is bigger than all of this. He is the one who orchestrated this whole thing, whether it turns out the way we want it to or not. For some reason we were meant to be a part of this chaos this week and if it's all in the name of parenthood then by all means, count me in. I don't know why He chose this for us this week. I don't know if it was to show the other people what they would be missing if they passed on the opportunity to be this child's parents. I just plain don't know.
I'm on my knees this week and I would love it if you would be too...whoever you are.
