Family is Life's Greatest Gift




Today is a day to celebrate adoption, as it is National Adoption Day. Truly my life would be less than fulfilling if I never had the chance to parent my two little angels. They have brought me indescribable joy and happiness and I love them more than words can express. My family is my world and I am so grateful that my Heavenly Father gave me the privilege of being Bella's and Ezra's mother and of experiencing the joy of parenting with my best friend, Blaine. And, of course, this privilege came to us through the love and sacrifice of incredible birthfamilies, who we will always love and cherish for their unparalleled gifts.

So today I have all of my friends who have adopted, who hope to adopt, who have been adopted, and who have placed a child for adoption in my thoughts and in my heart. Adoption equals love.
