A Lovely Statement

So, One of my biggest fears when I was making my adoption plan was whether or not the adoptive couple I chose would be able to love my baby as one of their own. So today I got on Facebook and I saw this statement:

It's amazing how much love you can have for someone you just met and yet, I feel like I've know him his whole life. Many worry that if you adopt an older child that you won't love them the same way you love the children you raised since birth. I honestly believe the Lord helps bridge those missing years with an unseen love that has always been there for each other. He's my boy!

This makes me very happy to read! It is beautiful, really! My friend has waited two years to pick up this little boy from another country and I know she couldn't be happier. I know that loving a child that is not your flesh and blood as your own, is very possible.

Thanks for this blog. I enjoy reading your point of view. I'm an adoptive mother and I can confirm that I love my children more than I ever thought I could love anyone or anything. I don't have biological children and now that I have my kids, I have no desire to have biological children. They have made me complete and I cry as I type this and just think about how grateful I am for them (and to their birthmoms).

I know how true this is. We are adopting our foster daughter. We got her at 4 1/2 months old and I still can't believe how much I love her. I can't believe that I didn't give birth to her because it feels like I did!
