I saw this on another blog

and it is fitting. I dont know the author but if you are the author and you object I will pull it down immediately. if you are the author and want credit I will gladly add that.

adopting a known child is an experience many people cant relate to. They dont know what its like to KNOW your child is out there waiting, what he or she looks like, where they are, and also know that you can do nothing to get them home until its time. its out of your control. you are completely at the mercy of someone else's timeline. this poem sort of captures that feeling. again I didnt write it, but if you know who did let me know!

KISSES IN THE WIND (The Waiting Child's Lullabye)

I hold you in my heart and touch you in my dreams.
You are here each day with me, at least that's how it seems.

I know you wonder where we are... what's taking us so long.
But remember child, I love you so and God will keep you strong.

Now go outside and feel the breeze and let it touch your skin...
Because tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.

May God hold you in His hand until I can be with you.
I promise you, my darling, I'm doing all that I can do.

Very soon, you'll have a family for real, not just pretend.
But for tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.

May God wrap you in His arms and hold you very tight.
And let the angels bring the kisses that I send to you each night.
