nice thought for the day

Those of you who haven’t had been through the adoption experience, you might not know that there’s a LOT of information out there for adoptive parents and adoptees.  Some of it is very scary and daunting and makes you feel like running the other way, some of it is glossed-over-and-spun-sugar-sweet, some of it is actually both helpful and reassuring.

From Chicken Soup for the Adopted Soul, Adoption means…”

“Adopted” means you were loved enough to be given up, and loved enough to be taken in.  “Adopted” means loved twice.

    That is so beautiful. I didn’t even know there is a chicken soup for the adopted soul. I should find a copy of that for our home.
