P is for Patient Persistence

Patient - steadfast despite opposition, difficulty, or adversity.

Persistent - to continue steadfastly or firmly in some state, purpose,course of action

When you’re looking to add a child to your home through adoption, these two words say it all. You just keep plugging away each day, holding on to the idea that there is a child or children out there who need you to be Mom and Dad. We have been approved to adopt for 18 months now and started the foster care process this past June. We see all kinds of adoption miracles around us. We are so happy for our friends and acquaintances. We pray for adoption opportunities with patience and persistence everyday. Each day as Landon talks about having a sister it melts your heart to see him grown and change and to have what all of his friends at church have. We know it will happen when we least expect it.
