Greeting friends! There are a lot of rumors going around and like I said before, I wont be posting those. But after reading some, we have to stick together and encourage one another!
There are a lot of comments from fellow adopting parents that rub me the wrong way but I just let them blow away because I tend to take things the wrong way and get very sensitive about things. But this blog is not about me, to read about me, go here! I have enjoyed talking about our decision to adopt to friends and strangers and especially parents of patients at work. I get asked "DO you have children?" ALL OF THE TIME !! But my answer always brings a smile and starts a great conversation between me and my families. To this I am grateful!!
LynnMarie will be loved. People ask how old she will be and if I will teach her English (that one makes me laugh)! I have to explain that she may be between 6 and 12 months old. People at work ask me if I have bought things and I answer occassionally but honestly, it is fun! An outift here and there doesnt hurt anyone, does it?
A friend asked me why we chose China and not another country whose wait was shorter. The answer is simple. God called us to China. This was the first time in my life that God's voice was so very loud and clear in making a decision. Perhaps it was the first time that I was quiet and listened! Adoption has been a great gift already to us. Also, when we decided to adopt from China, other countries were still new and all the time frames were about the same!
Perhaps I can get future dad Michael to post soon!!
Also, Steven (college friend) asked me to visit this site. They have adopted internationally and he is a praise and worship leader. Excellent site!
