I know that I said, in a blog post a few months ago, that I was totally cool with this season of being babyless. But, the fact of the matter is, as the end of the World Race draws near, our fourth anniversary comes up next month, and I see more and more friends having babies on Facebook, it is just hard.
I’ve always had the desire to be a mom, and as I see people around me having them, it’s hard not to imagine what it would be like.
I am definitely thankful that right now, I’m sitting in Kampala, Uganda, in a house called the Jesus House, that is the office of an organization that gets village children sponsored and fights child sacrifice. I wouldn’t trade this, and all the other experiences we’ve had on the Race, for anything, but maaaaybe for the chance to be a mom. But really, I wouldn’t.
I guess I’ve just been thinking about it a lot lately, after seeing all of the mother’s day posts, and especially since tomorrow we are going to work in a babies’ home. Yep, tomorrow, we get to bathe, feed, change, and cuddle babies, at Sanyu Babies’ Home.
Although they are not my babies, I will take what I can get, haha. Thank You, Lord, for giving me these Ugandan babies that have no moms, so I can be a mom to them, at least for a few hours. I will try to wait patiently until You bring Josh and I into the season of being parents. 😉
