Most parents would tell you that they never get tired of talking about their children. Talking about my son is no exception to the rule. I love talking about him. Some people might consider this a bit strange. Why? Because he is adopted.
Some Get It and Some Don’t
I have found that there are basically two factions of people when it comes to adoption–those who get it and those who don’t. There are people that understand and think our son is awesome. Then there are others.
Just this weekend there was an older woman talking to my husband at church. She said, “Don’t you have two beautiful girls of your own?” He answered, “Yes. And the most handsome little guy ever.” He said the look on her face was priceless–utter confusion.
Some people just don’t understand what it’s like to take a child that you didn’t give birth to and raise them as your own. We have two biological children in addition to our son. We can tell you first hand that he is every bit as awesome as they are. He is just as much ours as well. We don’t think about him looking differently. We just think about how handsome and amazing he is!

I am thankful that God gets it. He has a lot to say about adoption.
He predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will.” Ephesians 1:5 ESV
I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.” John 14:18 ESV
Today I did a guest post about things to consider if you want to adopt. You can find it at Creating a Great Day.
