Look What We Would Have Missed!!

Pictures capturing tiny snippets of the triumphs, the joy, the laughter, the craziness of large families, the visible healing, the snuggles, the cheering, the gatherings – and zillions more teeny-tiny memories and many gigantic memories because we said “YES!!”

And it’s a beautiful day to celebrate National Adoption Day!

Together we joyfully shout that we’d do it all again, without even a speck of hesitation.  In fact we wouldn’t change anything except bring more home sooner!!  They are all ours and we are family forever!!

“God sets the lonely in families…”  Psalm 68:6

I can’t imagine having missed all these memories (and millions more) with these precious treasures.  My heart is full…but oh how my arms ache for all the others (just like mine) waiting…
