Today was a great day..We found a sleigh baby bed and tons of little boy clothes size 12months.
It felt so good buying for him. I really felt as though he will be here one day..
I have been feeling like some people just don't get us..We were slammed pretty hard by
a family member questioning our motives. Gosh if we were doing something that was horrible
I guess I could expect someone to say something to us..We are raising up some great kids for the
Lord..We take care of our house-hold.We don't expect them too. We try and accept their life-style
yet they feel as though they can tell us how we are going to mess ours up by adopting a little boy..
If we would of listened to this same person we would be minus 3 kids right now. I remember them saying the same thing about our reversal. This person said the glamour and honey moon about all of this wont last and then we will be stuck...OK stuck with 6 great kids I'll take it.Stuck with a wonderful husband who loves me and these kids more than anything I'll take it..Raising up kids who love the Lord OK I'll take it..Having my table so full with laughter and love OK I'll take it.
Having a half dozen kids crawl in your bed and tell you how much they love you OK I'll take it.
Never feeling alone or like you don't count. OK I 'll take it. Always having someone to go with you anywhere..OK I'll take it. Always having something to laugh about.I'll take it. Crazy Sunday mornings getting ready for church..I'll take it. I'll take it all I will be stuck with these wonderful souls.....and when I get old I hope I'm stuck with tons and tons and tons of grandchildren so I'll be stuck more..................................................................
My motives for adopting is pure love for another little soul...
I believe love is a leap that can-not be denied...
So question, and then realize we are who we are and we will
make mistakes and we will get up and start a fresh day with the
love of our lives...our kids...I don't think we will regret investing in th
future. I believe more people regret living a selfish self centered life.
