In a few short days we will welcome a sibling group of four into our home. As we talked tonight, the fear, the anxiety, and the excitement began to sink in…..
Will we be good enough?
Will we love enough?
Will we trust enough?
Will we offer enough?
Will we BE enough for all six children in our home?
The journey that began in college over 12 years ago is coming to fruition. We can see the path…Youth Pastor, Special Education Teacher, CPS Investigator, friends who have fostered, Adoption Coordinator, State Director, friends who have adopted, Mother’s Day Out teacher, biological children–each step taking us one step closer and preparing us furthermore for the journey that lies ahead. No step unplanned nor unnecessary. And yet, the question lingers, are we enough? The answer–no.
The truth; He never called us to be enough, only to follow Him, as He is enough.
May you be enough for us and the children, both biological and foster, that you have called us to love, serve, protect, and care for. We are inadequate, but you are always more than enough. Thank you for the call, but even more for the journey. Amen.
