Time has passed since our last blog and we have decided to continue to place adoption on the back burner... we thought things were looking up for up and we could begin the process but things have continued to remain the same. We are not giving up, each day we hope that we can stop thinking about adoption, we think that if we stop mentioning the world adoption that it will fall from our vocabulary. No matter what we have tried... the word adoption continues to creep into our conversations and we have come to a crossroad in our lives...Continue... to...
research , to pray, to hope, to want, to wish, to dream, to vision....
do we stop.
do we give up????
Langston Hughes's poem comes to my mind as I ponder these questions...
A Dream Deferred
by Langston Hughes
What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore--
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over--
like a syrupy sweet?
Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.
Or does it explode?
So what happens to our dream of adoption???
We have yet to consider that still want to try. Only time can tell.
