Today’s guest post is from Shelly Roberts – an amazing lady with a huge heart for adoptive moms.
You’ve already said “YES!”, to the Fatherless, but now you realize you don’t have all it takes to make it through this journey. You sometimes feel alone, isolated, fearful, overwhelmed and even defeated.
During the early phases of adoption, it seemed like paperwork and finances would be your biggest obstacles. Once you’re further into it, you realize there is so much more.
Your children’s needs may be far more complex than you ever imagined. Perhaps you’re a veteran parent, yet you feel like you’re learning to be a mom all over again. Months were spent in preparation for the journey you are on including training of all kinds. Yet nothing could truly prepare you for what was to come. All those exhaustingly wonderful fund-raisers you poured your time and resources into? – they are a distant memory.
When you come to the end of yourself, and realize you can’t do this alone, an opportunity is born. You see, God knows you can’t do this on your own. He never expected you to. He knows your children’s needs, their past and their brokenness. He is well aware of your weakness, your fears and your limitations.
