The Blessings of Parenthood

Every once in a while I visit her website.  She is a young woman by my standards.  She and her husband found out they could not have children so they began the process of adoption.  She started her blog – – “Waiting Child” – to share her family’s journey into adoption and the struggles and pleasures of the process.  

At the end of their adoption trail – or should I say at the beginning – they found a precious little boy.  

To look at him he appears “normal”.  The reality is that he has a handicap they will deal with the rest of his life.  

I’ve heard a bit from her mother about how they are doing over these months and years.  The real story, however, is in the blog.

I encourage you to visit the site.  You will be inspired.  

My wish for you today is that you appreciate your parents for who and what they are.  They may not be perfect, but they likely do the best they can under their circumstances.  If you have parents that are extremely supportive, like my friend Diane is with her children, be thankful.  Look around you and compliment others for their good parenting skills. It is truly a gift.
