This was no ordinary adoption. The phrase ordinary adoption, in and of itself, is an oxymoron (what adoption is ordinary?) but this story – our story – really is a rare and precious miracle. The miracle did not lie just in receiving a new baby, although that, to me, was the sweetest part. There is so much more, so many layers to the miracle, that the full experience will likely be put into a book. I have a sweet little 2 ½ week-old baby to attend to, so for now, the book will have to wait.
Since 2007, I have seen and known that two more children would be joining our family.
