I’m sure a lot of you have heard this statement, “I need Africa more than Africa needs me”. This rings so true to me.
Throughout this adoption process I have come to realize so many things. God has used this experience to draw me near to him in such an amazing way! It has been such a journey of rediscovering myself, a journey of finding a passion for a people, a country, a continent! A continent that 15 months ago I knew little about, but it instantly captured my heart.
But now, this place, Africa, has my heart and is inspiring who I am, what I believe, what I’m passionate about and what I want the world to stand up for. And the craziest part! I haven’t even been there!
My heart can hardly wait to see our baby girls face, who is she? What’s her name? How old is she? What does she look like? But as I wait for our referral, I am just humbled to be on this amazing journey, where my eyes have been opened and my heart is overflowing!
So in the end- “who needs who?” We both do!!!!!
