A heart baby is a baby an adoptive mom prays for while she waits, wanders and loves baby even before they meet. Just as a biological baby grows in their tummy, her love for baby grows.
When we choose to be parents of any sort biological or adoptive we are putting ourselves in a vulnerable position. Our hearts are on the line for as long as we step into the realm of parenthood. I have dragged my feet for fear of my heart being shattered. I know grief. But I also know love.
Beginning our adoption journey my mind has been filled with questions. What will she be like?
Who will she become?
Will she choose to love the Lord?
I peak in the nursery as my mind wanders.
This is her growing in my heart.
She is my heart baby. I don’t know her. But as we wait we pray.
Some babies grow in mommies tummies and some grow in mommies hearts.
