Did you ever have one of those days when you wonder “why bother”? When you’re in the process of adopting, you may have those days. Many prospective adoptive parents have fall throughs, or are presented to birth mothers and not selected, before they end up adopting the child that they were meant to have all along. These situations are sad, discouraging, frustrating, emotionally draining, and sometimes expensive. You may very well wonder “why bother”? The reason is because it WILL happen. One day they will place that baby in your arms, or that child will walk through the door, and all of the waiting, crying, praying, and wanting to give up will all have been worth it. Please share your thoughts if this happened to you, or if you are in the “why bother” frame of mind. We are always here to help!
