Babies that Wait on my Heart

 I shared with you this baby boy who was on my heart awhile back.  Just barely over a year old, adorable little face! Today I got a glimpse of him learning to walk in video.  And it made me so sad for him.  SO young and no mommy to cheer him on as he attempts to take his first steps.  He has been on a few different lists now, since before the new year.   In other words, he has been waiting for over 6 months for someone to look at him and fall in love and bring him home.

And this baby Angel has really stole my heart.   REALLY, as in I have tried to figure out is she mine? 

We have prayed, and so far, the door is not opening.  I want to MAKE it open.  In fact to be honest, I would be crazy enough to say, I wish God would throw it SO wide open I could bring them both home.  Because they are babies.  And they deserve to be in a family before they reach their 2nd birthday and have a mommy bake them a birthday cake and light the candles for them.   They deserve to come home before they are even old enough to remember a life before a family.   They deserve a chance!

Some might read this and say we are SO crazy to even think about bringing more home.  (my husband included).  Some will read this and say, just DO it.  But God.... He is who we listen to.  Or TRY to listen to.  I wish I could hear clearly.   I wish my house would sell.  I wish money would just rain down from heaven.  I wish those who don't want to adopt, would help those that will!  I need a sponsor. Anyone?  ;-)

Someday my heart will settle.  Until then I will pray that God would whisper to their families quickly.

I know what you are saying. I have been soul searching myself. I would love to add to my family with another baby from China. My little girl is almost 5 and I want to hold another baby, experience all the baby milestones.
