While browsing Twitter recently, I came across a few beautiful articles written for National Adoption Month that got me thinking about all the incredible ways adoption has touched my life. Though I personally was not adopted, I look at my groups of family, friends, and coworkers and realize that without adoption, I would not have been blessed with the relationships that I have.
Here are two particularly poignant articles written about adoption:
“To My Adoptive Parents” by Tori Lyn
“What My Adoptive Family Taught Me About Unconditional Love” by Shannon O’Connell.
To those of you who have adopted, I can’t express enough gratitude. You are changing the course of a child’s life. You are giving someone down the road their spouse, or best friend, or coworker. Thank you. ♥
