Adoption is a gift from the heart
Love is exponential
You see, I believe that love isn’t divisible, it’s exponential. He can love her with all his heart, but his love for her will never weaken his love for me. Actually, it’s the opposite. Because he loves her and because his heart is whole, he is able to love me without conflict. We play different parts, but both are vital to L’s emotional health and happiness. L invited her to spend Christmas with us this year and I have to say that her presence may be the best present of the season. I’m so glad they have the next 10 days to love on each other and create memories that they will cherish forever. My cup runneth over.
Our Son and Meg-
Meg is one of the strongest people I know. She’s been through so much in her life but has never allowed her struggles to define her. Situations that would’ve broken me have turned her into a confident, determined woman. I feel so proud of her and grateful that she continues to share her life with us. It isn’t common to have this type of relationship with Birth Moms, but it should be. I know L’s life is better with her in it and I feel lucky that God chose me to be a connecting dot in their picture of life.
