The Wait

My heart goes out to those adoptive families who are waiting for their daughters of China (and from other countries, for that matter). The process is still at a snail's pace and not expected to increase any time soon. I can tell you from personal experience, the wait truly feels like a suffering too difficult to bear at times. Yesterday at mass, the reading struck me, and I thought of all the adoptive families awaiting their hopes:

Beloved:If you are patient when you suffer for doing what is good, this is a grace before God. 1 Peter 2:20

Those of you who are waiting, may God's Grace continue to sustain you. May patience be poured into you. You will have daughters...the perfect daughters; it's only a matter of time.
