Thoughts on Adoption

As I wait I'm reminded of an analogy I read. About families, about adoption It goes like this....

Picture a mobile, floating effortlessly. Now whap one side and watch it careen out of balance. Over time, the motion slows and regains balance. It would be the same for our family.

After a blissful infant adoption in 2000, I thought we had it all figured out. You know parenting. Isn't that when we get into trouble? When we think we have it all figured out. Our next adoption sent our mobile spinning. And now, three years later, everyone has found their place, better than ever. So we're going to shake it up again, And I'm really excited.

We'll be traveling to Guilin, China for Jaynie Lin. She is 6 1/2 years old and currently in foster care.

Our plane leaves Nov. 16. We'll get Jaynie on the 18th. Stay tuned........
