I want to share this beautiful poem written by an adoptive mommy who, in the quietest moments, listens to her heart. It expresses so much of what we felt before we surrendered to God's call to adopt when we had nothing but our faith to proceed.
Heart Vs. Head
I watch her chest rise and fall
Sweet peace and sleep drift over her
Dark hair peeking from under the blanket
She's finally here and my heart has never known
Something whispers softly in the wind
Another small one...far away...
Soft, rhythmic breaths from a palate or crib
Arms and eyes that wait for a forever Mom
Ridiculous! My head says...No time...No money...No way!!
Three small ones under the age of five...
Chaos reigns in our house...Side by side with joy.
Rapturous! My heart says...The feeling of that little hand in yours...
With each beat it tells me
You can do "all things" when loveLights the way.
