Kristin called today while I was at Women’s Bible Study. She requested that I re-write our “Dear Birth Parent” letter (AGAIN!). She also gave me a little more info on the birth mom and told me that the other couple she is presenting is an African American couple. When I heard that my heart and brain just shut down. I thought, “Here we go again.” We don’t care what race (or gender) the child is that we adopt…but in the past we have found that race can be important to a birth mom when she is choosing a family to parent her child. I feel like our chance of being chosen has gone from 99% down to 5%. Why did I feel so strongly yesterday that "this is it"? Was I deceiving myself? Was it just wishful thinking? I don't know.
