Thoughts on Adoption
My family has had the opportunity to have adoption touch our lives in multiple ways. I gained a sister through adoption, we were given the chance to add to our own family with the adoption of Camryn and now we have had the choice experience to see the miracle of adoption bless the lives of another family through the adoption of Camryn's baby. Someone asked me once how I could possibly bond with and love someone else's child. I wondered, "How could I not?". After all, "Hello... it's a baby!", how could you not love them? But most of all, when you go all the way down to the very foundation of how we are all related, anyone, baby or not, is our brother or sister and how can we deny them the love that we have been given by the Heavenly Father that we all share?
So...thank you to all of you who have been so supportive and patient and kind to all of us. To those who have openly shown your support as well as those who quietly offered prayers of love in our behalf. While we don't specifically know who each of you are, we have profoundly felt and are grateful for each and every one.
Here is to moving onward and upward. Life is wonderful and definitely never dull.
