And if something DOES it can be dealt with and not be a big deal. It's that slow fade of blending in that you want so bad and when one or more struggles in the family you feel like it may never come. That it's hopeless.
But it isn't. I can't say there's a miracle answer.Or miracle DAY. I can't say we aren't worried that certain issues we hope to address before our teens are adults may not happen.
We are blessed. Deeply blessed to have grown our family with our 3 teen treasures and little Miss Kitty. Soon we can add Miss Phoebe too:)
Such wonderful sons and daughters. Unexpected treasures. Just waiting to bloom. I'm very thankful to be their momma. To share in the joy of watching them grow. I feel sad for people who DON'T have the chance to parent these treasures. I think everyone should have this.
It should be an epidemic. 163 MILLION orphans. Epidemic- spread adoption far and wide. Wipe that number down to zip. Nada, nothing, ZERO. Can you imagine it? I can only guess how JOYFUL our God would be.
None are unimportant. All have a family that NEEDS them. That's right, a family that needs them, not they need a family--- I write it that way because they change you forever. For the good. Stretch you in ways you never thought possible. Give you the opportunity to love BLIND. I never see "Chinese children" when looking or loving on my kids. They are my sons, my daughters. We NEEDED them. God knew.
I wouldn't trade this for anything. I want this to SPREAD:)
How 'bout it??
