Kisses in the Wind

Posted in Causes tagged at 11:06 am by livethelifeyoudream

I have several friends who are in the midst of the adoption wait-and-see process. They were each called to adopt for different reasons. One couple, after years of infertility treatments, was unable to conceive a child. Another couple feels so blessed with three young boys that they would like to add a girl to the mix. The final couple has one child, but the pregnancy was difficult, so they turned to adoption for their second child.

Their journey has been difficult and time consuming. Their financial resources have been stretched. Their patience tested and yet, they persist. They maintain hope. They have confidence and faith that God will deliver in his time. They inspire me with their determination and courage.

For those waiting for a child, I pray that your prayers are answered soon.

KISSES IN THE WIND (The Waiting Child’s Lullaby)

I hold you in my heart and touch you in my dreams.
You are here each day with me, at least that’s how it seems.
I know you wonder where we are… what’s taking us so long.
But remember child, I love you so and God will keep you strong.
Now go outside and feel the breeze and let it touch your skin…
Because tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.
May God hold you in His hand until I can be with you.
I promise you, my darling, I’m doing all that I can do.
Very soon, you’ll have a family for real, not just pretend.
But for tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.
May God wrap you in His arms and hold you very tight.
And let the angels bring the kisses that I send to you each night.
