How much you love your children. One of the most pleasant surprises of parenthood is that you can be so fully thrilled and in love with this little baby.
I've done both, giving birth and adopting. One of the questions anyone considering adoption will ask themselves is, "Will I be able to love a child that did not come from my flesh and blood?" I can tell you most assuredly the answer is yes. I couldn't possibly love Jack anymore if he was born of my body. I love him no less than the child I gave birth to.
The days that I reflect and take it all in, the amazing thing the Lord has done in my life. The way he brought my son to me, I am overwhelmed. To get to love two children with this crazy love, I am so grateful.
