When we first got our baby we talked about adoption all the time. Mostly it was because all the sudden we had a baby and people were not quite sure where he had come from! They would look at me curiously and say, “I didn’t even know you were pregnant.” So, we would launch into our raves about the blessing of adoption. But, over time, we found ourselves talking about it less and less, probably because everyone was all caught up on our story. And, in the beginning, we thought about it a lot ourselves, about “our adopted son”, but within just a few months it rarely crossed our minds that our son was adopted. He’s just “our son”. Sometimes now, after just ten months, we find ourselves talking about our son’s adoption and it really is almost surprising that at one time we went through the whole adoption process, because it is the most natural thing in the world that he is ours. We love our son very much, and the coolest thing is, he loves us too! He lights up when he sees either one of us. He calls for us when he is sleepy or hungry. And he finds comfort and joy in our hugs and kisses and snuggles. We are a family, brought together by the blessing of adoption, but just a normal family.
