"Take an action each day that alleviates suffering in the world. Bring light into darkness."
-Angeles Arrien

Here is the test to find whether your mission on earth is finished:
If you're alive, it isn't.
--- Richard Bach

I have come to realize more and more that the greatest disease and the greatest suffering is to be unwanted, unloved, uncared for, to be shunned by everybody, to be just nobody [to no one]
--Mother Teresa

We were not separated at your birth.
It was the moment at which we began our journey toward each other

Adoption Pregnant

How true!!

I am pregnant, but my tummy isn't growing,

And no one ever calls me "little Mom"

The public simply isn't overflowing with questions that I'd handle with aplomb.

There are no special clothes to mark my waiting

Nobody stops and smiles as I walk by,

The absence of a due-date is frustrating

And looking at the nursery makes me cry

When I am over due no one will worry

The phone won't ring and ring as friends check in.

I can't hurry my labor in a hurry

My new life as a parent to begin

Adoption is a worrisome endever and waiting alone is not much fun

To be "with child" for a year seems like forever

Dear God, we'er ready!Please send our little one.
