I Need a Family... - Part IV
So, we wait. Wait for the next home study meeting. Wait for documents to come back. Wait for the home study completion & review. Wait for the USCIS. Wait for approval. Does the wait ever end?
This is where it gets tough. Life keeps going on. Work get busy. Really busy. I don't just have cash to just lay down for this. The kids we have at home have their own needs. Stress. Questions. Doubt...
I pause to think... How long has Kristin been waiting? How long has she needed an eternal family? What option does she have? Faith. Hope. Endure. Wait... Wait.
Kristin's foster mom tucks her in and turns out the light. Kristin lays there momentarily. She buries her head in her pillow and pleads...
"Please. I need a family."
