Bringing Home Baby

If you think biological children have a stronger right to their parents' hearts, you are wrong.

If you think that the love of an adoptive parent for their child could never match the kind of love that parents have for the babies who carry their genes, you have another thing coming.

I've spent all of 15 minutes skipping around the Loving Leah blog because, as I posted yesterday, they had some killer Ugandan travel tips. I clicked away from their travel tips to a more current post, and my heart stopped.

There was their precious son, adopted from Uganda, and my heart leapt from my chest. Adoption is just such an indescribable miracle, and to see the beauty of it in pictures makes our own coming miracle feel just a little closer.  I was so shocked by my emotional reaction. Their little boy was so beautiful, and so at home having his two year old birthday party and playing with his friends.  It made me so utterly happy that I started laughing out loud... until I was sobbing. The kind of sob where you can't breath or talk, but are smiling and laughing at the same time.  (The only other time I've done this is when I was eight months pregnant and saw a couple bring home their newborn for the first time on "Bringing Home Baby.") There is something magical about bringing a sweet child into your family.

Our turn is getting closer!!!
