Yesterday, while getting my pedicure (I told you I was taking care of myself:)), I read an interview of Sandra Bullock about her newly adopted son, Louis. She spoke of her precious son as any new mom would talk about her child...with pure love and adoration dripping from every word.

I watched The Blind Side today and cried as a story of courage, love and adoption unfolded in front of me.

Adoption can be and is beautiful. I needed to be reminded.

Jason and I are so blessed. We actually get to experience the miracle of one set of parents making a courageous and painful choice out of the greatest love that exists, the love they have for their child. And then, even more breathtaking to me, we will finally get to know the love between parents and their child, not because that child has our genes, but because love is that magical.

Wow, we are blessed.


  1. So true...we are truly blessed beyond words! I can't wait for our weekend date next weekend!! :)

  2. I love this post! So true! That movie makes me want to adopt as well! :) so yes.. You ARE the lucky ones!

  3. You are so right. Adoption is a very beautiful thing! And anyone who is involved is extremely lucky and blessed!

  4. You, your child, and their first family will all be amazingly blessed by your awesome attitude, Faith! I love it and I learn from it everytime I read your blog.

    Thank you for being so awesome!


  5. I find myself in awe of the fact that you can write this post at this point in your journey! I think it says wonderful things about you! For me, this part of my journey was very "woe is me" most of the time.

    Obviously now I feel so blessed I could burst, though! :)


  6. I loved the Blind side. It was a WONDERFUL movie. Great post!

  7. You are and will be so blessed. Domestic infant adoption was the best thing we ever did.

    Now that I've found your blog, I'll have to check back. I can't wait to see the post with the photo of you two with your new baby.
