The Gift of You

How do you feel adoption has impacted your life? For me, our son enriched our life beyond what we could have ever dreamed possible. His presence has been a blessing. This quote resonates with me.

I didn’t give you the gift of life…

I didn’t give you the gift of life but in my heart I know, the love I feel is deep and real as if it had been so. For us to have each other is like a dream come true. No, I didn’t give you the gift of life. Life gave me the gift of you.
