The Balance Must be Restored

A prayer for our future child.

God, we have many things to thank you for. But now we come to you with an urgent request about our future child and Mateo's future brother. If you could do anything for us regarding this second matching and adoption, please, please, please, give us a mellow child. Of course, it would be great if the kid was healthy and well-adjusted and all of that. But even more important is that he be the polar opposite of the one you already gave us (who we love dearly and thank you for almost everyday, by the way).

But, honestly, I don't think I have the stamina for two feisty children. We already have one bossy, demanding, high maintenance, opinionated, loud, hyper, willful, spirited (and adorable) child running the house. Not to mention he takes after me. Dave is in the minority with his calm spirit and mellow vibes. So, please, restore the balance in the universe and bring us a child like Dave. Guide our social worker, God, to find the most easy-going baby on the earth, and bring him to us (wrapped in a bow on our doorstep would great). May the force be with you.

Hi J-Momma....got your comment on my blog (Our Knott-Wright Life). Our babes were adopted domestically but not through foster care. We have had both of them since birth, I was lucky enough to be able to be in the delivery room for Carver's c-section. I must have Mateo's twin...Anna sounds exactly like the girl 2 year old version of him! Amazing how our adopted children can be so much like us...my husband looked at me the other day and said, "she is a mini-you".....I think he has just been afraid to say it out loud! Living with me and a mini-me! Your son is beautiful and I hope you get that "mellow" sibling!

hahaha--well my mom told me to have other child to keep Julia busy! Yeah--they joined heads and plotted against me! So, I went completely off the edge and now have 3 that plot against me. And no matter how crazy it gets I wouldn't change a thing! Just accept life is crazy--and full of spice.
