as a mother who is interested in adopting, a wife to an adopted husband, a daughter-in-law to an adoptive mom and a friend to a couple who are in the precious months leading up to an adoption I am touched by your words and your beautiful writing. thank you for so eloquently describing a relationship i've always been curious about. your children are lucky to have such an expressive and sensitive mother.

I am a mama-by-adoption, too, and understand so many of your sentiments. I like the way you described each relationship, in each family, as being different and it's your job to keep things open, yet give boundaries as you see fit. That is exactly how it works. Amen.

Adoption is filled with joy, wonder, heartache and miracles. Though I have no personal experience with the process I have a few friends who do and I love each and every one of their stories. Simply beautiful.
