The effects of institutionalizing a child
Questions that will never be answered
Trying to understand your child when you've known them for about 16% of their life.

Adoption = Redemption
It means so much more to me now that I've been through the adoption process here on this earth; how much God loves me. He adopted ME. I am HIS child. He LOVES me. REALLY loves me. It doesn't matter what I do or don't do, He unconditionally loves me and wants what's best for me.
Adoption is hard. Harder than I ever thought it would be, but it comes with a greater understanding of what God did for me.
