To be honest... I don't have very much support in this adoption. And I mean... not much at all. I think I can count TRUE support on one hand.
Now I have lots of bloggie friends and RR friends and I am so grateful to each one of you! I wish I could express just how valuable you are to me!
But I get so tired of feeling like I need to defend my love for my girls! Or my desire to make whatever sacrifices necessary to bring them home and raise them! Or my desire to adopt not only 1 special needs child, but 2!
I can not believe how many people are floored that we would adopt a blind child!! Down syndrome ... well that might be okay, because everyone knows how happy and friendly "those people" are. [WHATEVER!!!!] Still, in almost every conversation there is an undertone of disbelief, horror, confusion, and disapproval!
And sadly, I really don't think I am imagining it! I always talk about it with joy! But lately, there are few I can share this journey with that are excited or find it really cool, or even see the joy of our Father in the steps!
I hate negative attitudes.
May the glory of OUR FATHER shine in every step, every action, every prayer, every request for help and every shared confidence as we work towards bringing these little ones home! HE IS ALL THE STRENGTH WE NEED!
