The (Unexpected) Joys of Adoption

I wrote a three-post series on The Costs of Adoption last month, basically explaining that while adoption is wonderful, there are oftentimes things that we end up losing in the process.  I focussed on three of the main things we have encountered personally,the loss of family relationships, the loss of our church, and the loss of some of our friends.

What I want to write about next are some of the unexpected JOYS of adoption, what we have gained!  I want to focus on the same three things:

Family

Friends

Church

because while we have lost some of the things we had, we have ultimately gained much more.




Stay tuned!

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life; but those who make their journey home across time and miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them,are carried on the wings of destiny; and placed among us by God's very own hands. --Kristi Larson
