This I Believe - Adoption

NPR has a segment called "This I Believe" where people write essays about their life experiences. While we were in Utah, John and Dawnette shared one of the essays with us. It's about a couple who is waiting to adopt and have come to believe parenthood is a gift. It reflects many of our own feelings, but the feelings are expressed so well that we had to share it. You can listen to it or read it.

From someone who feels less human due to my own flawed biology....this gripped my soul.
Thanks for sharing it.
By the way, I'm an adoptive mom times three.

I love how our hearts can be touched, bringing us to pray lovingly for people we've never met face to face.

Praying for you now. =)
