I looked around the courtroom convinced everyone could hear my heart beating in my chest.
I could barely breathe, could barely trust in the moment.
“Congratulations to you both on your new son.”
It was official
It was complete
This precious gift was now ours to call our own.
Yes i cried, to be honest with the amount of adrenaline pumping through my body i was surprised i didn’t burst into dance.
My heart exploded, the love i had held on too wrapped in chains of fear was now free to fly.
My beautiful precious boy.
Adoption is a journey of pregnant moments.
Full of expectation,and excitement but also full of pain and fear.
A free-fall into the unknown.
A parachute silk woven in faith.
I cannot say its been easy,
A labyrinth of broken promises and painful expectation.
Yet whilst the scars will take time to heal.
Whilst the emotional burden will take time to lift it is with no doubt in my heart that i can say
He is worth it all and so much more.
