Not good enough

Wow- 2 posts in one day but I have to get this out. We were turned down by yet another birthmom- the one in Denver. I told Brian that we must not be good enough because we are on our what seems like 20th birthmom. I don't know how people do multiple adoptions in the United States. There are so many children that need to be adopted and have a good home yet they make the process almost unbearable.

I found this poem and it is something that helps keep me going.

Not flesh of my flesh,
Nor bone of my bone,
But still, miraculously my own.
Never forget for a single minute,
You didn't grow under my heart,
But in it.
