Adoption is that little miracle that happens when courageous love and hopeful hearts collide. It happens when a new family is formed. When answers to each other's prayers are finally heard. It's something that many don't understand, but is profound. It's because of the deep LOVE for a child. It lets the world know that humanity is alive. That sacrifices are made for the one. That LOVE conquers doubt, fear and selfish desires Adoption is a Miracle.

Hopeful Hearts

Longing for something that you thought would just naturally fall into place is a difficult place to be in. It's the realization that life is not taking the path that you had always dreamed of. This can be crushing news when it relates to something as big as how to GROW your family. Adoptive Families have to come to terms with not having full control of how and when they can GROW their family. They put their trust in a process that if often unfamiliar to them and without a definite timeline. They do their part and HOPE. This HOPE takes courage. Of course we all doubt and struggle and sometime we can only see far enough ahead of us to take one more step. The dictionary defines HOPE as "a feeling of desire for something and confidence in the possibility of its fulfillment". In the adoption world Hope bring miracles.

February is the month we celebrate LOVE! Working in the adoption world has taught me so SO much about love. Until recently I worked for LDSFS where their tag line reads "Its About Love". There could not be a more accurate description. Adoption is about LOVE! I've looked into the eyes of LOVE as I watched a new mother memorizing the delicate features of her baby. The baby that has her nose and eyes. The baby that she has carried for nine month despite the fact that she never thought this would happen to her. The baby that has kept her up all night kicking and has stretched her body out so much that it seems impossible she will ever get comfortable sleeping again. This new mother is filled with LOVE, a love that she has never experienced before. A love so deep and profound and often times unexpected. It's a courageous LOVE. A love that allows her to defy nature and to trust. Trust doesn't come as easily as it used to for her. She has been let down in life. She has been let down by herself, the other half of the pregnancy equation, and friends who she thought would be there forever. Despite all of this, she is able to trust the most precious thing in her life to another. Her deepest desire is to put the needs of her child first. For what ever reason she is not prepared and she knows her baby's needs can't wait. So much of what I have learned about love comes from looking into the eyes of love as I've watched the courageous love of a birth mother as she breaks her own heart to give her child more.
