Father's Day Blues--Post from David

I often thought throughout my life that when I was in my 30's I would already have children and a purpose in life. Now that I ponder being 37 next month, I often ask myself, "Will I ever be a father?" Up until 3 years ago, I had my own father to wish Happy Father's Day to, and deep down I thought that by this time I would be a father, but the Lord has not seen it fit for us to be parents yet. So to put it in a nutshell, waiting on this adoption sucks! I battle every day with the disappointment of not getting a phone call or update, or any hope that our adoption might happen soon. If nothing else, I guess I can be a father to our two dogs and cat (but not biological, ha).

I guess I have to take back all the bad things I said about blogging; this blogging is fun. I think next, I'll twitter, whenever I figure out what that is...

Well put David! I'm glad you chose to share your perspective, and I will say to you what I've been saying to Sarah: I admire how brave you are in this whole process and in your honesty. I know God has great purpose over your life and I look forward to seeing what that will specifically look like. Until then I pray for patience, peace, and continued hope, even when it seems like there is no reason for it.
