I wonder if it was a coincidence that National Adoption Month is during the month of Thanksgiving. With adoption, there is so much to be thankful for. We have a daughter - the greatest gift that could ever, ever, ever be given to us. Our hearts our full when we think of this priceless gift given to us by Jocelyn's birth family and by our Father in Heaven. We are thankful to many who made it possible. People who meant to and people who helped us without knowing. So many were generous in uncountable ways.
"Family" is usually at the top of the "what I'm thankful for" Thanksgiving recitals. Hug your loved ones tonight. Your parents who love you the way I love Joci. Your sweetheart who you build your dreams with. And your babies. Hug them and love them. Tell them you are thankful for them. And tell your Heavenly Father while you're at it.
I am thankful for Him. He's one of those generous individuals who made our family possible.
