Lately I've been overwhelmed with the magnitude of being Calvin and Patrick's mom...overwhelmed in a good way! I can't believe God chose me to be their mom - I feel so undeserving and so honored. It's amazing to me that God bridged miles and miles, crossed language barriers and cultural differences to unite us as a family. He hand-picked us to be together! Adoption isn't 2nd best - it's just different. I wish everyone understood that - it is so discouraging to be the receiver of thoughtless comments and assumptions. Adoption is simply another beautiful way of having children.
Yes, adoption is a passion for me - don't mind my ranting. :) We adoptive parents tend to be a sensitive bunch; we have taken a road less travelled, less understood but every bit as wonderful. Whether parents through biology, adoption, or both, we are ALL on an incredible journey of a lifetime.
I love my kids! I can't imagine my life without them; it seems they have been with us forever! Isn't God awesome?
