A rough day…

Acquaintances of ours found out their match has fallen through; the birthmother has decided to parent.

Granted, the baby isn’t even born yet.

Granted, this is GREAT for the child provided his/her mother is sure about this decision.

None of that makes it any less difficult for the prospective adoptive parents, and this would have been their first child.

If/when we have a failed match, I will still have children. I will still be a mom. I will take solace in these facts, but that will not remove the sense of loss I know I will feel.

People don’t look at a couple with a failed match the way they do a couple who has just suffered a miscarriage. Maybe they should. There is still a loss there.

Tonight, I am taking solace in the fact that He makes all things beautiful in His time.
