CBS Adoption Segment

Yesterday, CBS News showed an adoption story (article and video; video is a bit easier to follow) that really moved me. I think it's so neat that even just one man can have such an impact. The story helped renew my hope in our adoption process. For us, adoption has so much to do with sharing our lives, giving what we can give to others.

I've been thinking about that story all day today. We went to the beach and I was laying under our beach umbrella, wondering what our own adoption will be like. Sometimes media has the ability to clarify our inner feelings, to solidify some inner search, in a way that stimulates the imagination for days.

By the way, the beach was wonderful - the weather was perfect...sunny and warm at times, overcast and moody at others. You could run around on the beach barefoot while it was overcast, but as soon as the sun came out, the hot sand quickly became too much for bare feet.

Oh, and Meg has a nice sunburn now :)

What a neat story in the news! It's really great to hear a husband's perspective on adoption - I hope your adoption is everything and more than what you could imagine. Good luck to you and your wife.
