Lately, I keep finding myself lost deep in thought about the kids we'll be adopting. I know it will be while yet before we get to find out who they are, and even longer before we get to meet them, but my curiosity is already getting the best of me...
How old are they? Have they started school? If so, do they like school? Can they read? Have they heard of Adventures in Odyssey? What games do they love to play?
For some reason, I have the feeling they'll be boys. Not for any particular reason, other than I totally wouldn't know what to do with boys, so that seems like just the kind of thing God would do to stretch me a bit.
I wonder what they're experiencing right now. I assume they're already in foster care, but how long have they been there? What were the circumstances that brought them there? Is it a good foster home?
What kind of challenges are they dealing with? What are their health issues? Their emotional issues? What creative solutions will we have to try to help them heal?
Whoever they are, wherever they are, I pray that God is protecting their little hearts from the instability that likely fills their lives right now.
