We adopted our precious daughter almost 2 years ago. I still hear from one friend in particular (almost every time I see her) that I will soon become pregnant now that we have adopted, and not just pregnant, but with multiples. It used to hurt a lot to hear her say this so adamantly. I don’t know if it is because I have heard it so often from this one person, or that I’m enjoying my daughter so much, but it doesn’t seem to hurt as much any more even though I still long to become pregnant especially now that my daughter is almost 2. The thing that I continually remind myself when I hear these statements is that God is in control. He gave us our daughter through amazing circumstances, and He is in control of whether or not we have another child and how we have another child. I’ve even started answering my friend’s comments with, “Only if that is what God has planned for us.” I don’t know if that has made her think about her statement or not, but I don’t hear her make the “now you’ll get pregnant” statements as often.
