It is difficult to explain, but sometimes I am overcome with waves of emotion when it comes to our new kids. Sunday morning we went off to church, got the kids checked in to their classes and came in to the service as worship was starting. I think the song we were singing was “Happy Day” and as I stood there singing and clapping I was suddenly overwhelmed with just the strongest wave of missing my kids and wanting them there for that moment.
It was a family day, they are our family and yet they are not here with us and at times it seems unbearable. My comfort comes in knowing that they are being well cared for and are with their grandmother and that our time will come soon enough.
