O Me! O Life!
We have conversations about adoption quite often at the dinner table. It started when Pookie was still in my tummy. I love the natural curiosity of children and I take every chance I can to celebrate the manner in which Evan came to our family. I do not ever want to diminish his losses but I cannot help but rejoice that he is mine. Ours. Forever.
We were not the best prepared for adoption. I am sure there are families that excel at parenting but I am convinced that Evan loves us anyway. We leapt and God provided the grace, honesty, humility and humor to make it possible. We are working it out and all the mistakes we make are made with love. We are learning and growing together. As a family.
I’m writing seven posts in seven days this week. To check out other bloggers who are doing the same, see the list here.
