I think the comment I hear the most from people when they hear we are adopting, is “Oh, she will be so lucky!” or “That is so good of you both to do that!”Â
I know where these people are coming from, and I know that I have thought, upon hearing of orphans being adopted, that same thing.
But since starting our adoptions, I have never once thought that gosh, our child will sure be lucky.Â I have never felt so humbled in my life. The thought of taking this little person away from the only life she will have ever known, Â and taking on the responsibility of helping her grow, both emotionally and physically, and helping her to feel safe and loved, is both overwhelming and exciting. But most of all I feel blessed, blessed that God had entrusted us with this task, and blessed to be able to be a Â mommy. And I know that really, we are the lucky ones!
