I Dream of Being Together :: Putting God First Place

I Dream of Being Together

In September of 2012, I moved my writing home to a new space titled Fostering Love at Home. I'd love for you to join me there!

I love this weekly feature from The Gypsy Mama. For five minutes we write, unscripted, unedited. We just write. Then we link up and build community! Today’s topic is Together.


I woke up very early this morning (at least according to my standards!). I had an overwhelming sense to pray for my children.

You see, I’ve written about them before. Even in five minutes!

But, here’s the thing. I don’t know them. I don’t know their faces. I don’t know how old they are.

We are still waiting to meet our children. The timing of adoption is generally so unknown.

Thankfully our waiting is hopefully coming to an end. At this point, our children could come home any day. That means it could be tomorrow or in three months. We just don’t know.

For right now, I dream. I dream of the day that we will finally be together. The day I will finally be able to hug them and tuck them in at night.

I hope and pray that we are together soon!

  • These thoughts are just beautiful here… it pierces my soul deep. To think of you praying for those who are unwanted by others, yet you are willing to open up your heart wide to receive them and bless them and give them new destinies, by His grace…

    True religion in God’s eyes… beautiful. Believing with you, in this moment to be united with those you love already, and do not yet know, knowing God does.
