Foster care is risky.
Adoption is risky.
Love itself is always risky.
I recently read this beautiful thought from an adoptive mom, who was talking about her unexpected journey into special needs parenting, brought about by the adoption of her son.
“[T]he unknowns of adoption have been its greatest gift to me. [O]ur family didn’t turn out exactly as planned, but that it’s richer and more beautiful than I ever could have dreamed. I remember well the days of fearing hardship, of wanting to avoid it at all cost, but life with Alyosha has shown me there is something greater on the other side of that fear — it’s love.”
