Waiting on God–Our Journey of Adoption…an adoption blog about the book, paper pregnancies, & persisting in prayer.
Today’s daily prompt, All About Me, motivates us to explain why we chose our blog’s title and what it means to us.
Nine Year Pregnancy, as a blog title, was chosen to match the book for which it is named. But how, you ask, did I come up with that title for my book? Glad you asked . . .
Our adoption journey, from conception (the dream where it all began) through delivery (the day we received the girl who would become our daughter) took a decade. At the request of many who knew about our journey, I began writing the book. In its initial stages, I shared title ideas with our three biological sons. One of my title ideas at that time was Ten Year Pregnancy. I did not like the title, though each of my sons (separately) wrote back explaining to me why that was the best title.
I thought that it would be a good title if it could be Nine Year Pregnancy (because of its similarity to a nine-month pregnancy). My husband suggested that I go ahead and call it Nine Year Pregnancy. At first, I did not feel right about that. But, after sleeping on it, an idea struck me. If a nine-month pregnancy can have a day-long labor (as I experienced with my firstborn), then a nine year pregnancy can have a year-long labor.
