Even though you may not look like your child at all, even though you may have adopted him or her from across the world, your hearts match.
“Our skin doesn’t match. You don’t have my eyes or mouth, and our faces aren’t the same shape. I don’t know what it’s like to look at you and catch a glimpse of myself as a child. What I see in you is far more beautiful than that. I see the hand of God in my life. I see into the windows of Heaven and you, sweet angel, are by my side every single day. Our skin may not match, but we match hearts.”
You and your child, although seemingly different in every way on the outside, are not so much different on the inside. Indeed, we are all the same: human beings searching to love and be loved. Skin, race, ethnicity, these things matter not at all when you decide to bring your child home. They are not barriers that divide. All you feel is total and complete love, and that’s the way it should be.
