I love this wish because it is so very true! We are a family that will be linked by so much more than blood. We get to love our child because he is a source of joy and light that is beyond words. We get to love Kai because we made a choice. We decided to grow our family by love when we were unable to grow our family by the “normal” means.
Adoption really is a beautiful choice and it doesn’t have to be a “second choice” or “last option”. There are so many beautiful children out there that need a home and parents to love them- for whatever reason. I have to admit that we felt a strong calling to adopt. That decision and all of the ones after it have absolutely changed my life for the better. Even with this crummy wait- I know that when I hold Kai in my arms- all the time will disappear!
Thank you Lidanette for this beautiful wish!
