A is for Adoption…

I was adopted twice...

My parents adopted me first way back in 1970. I was put up for adoption with the Children’s Home Society of California because my birthmother wanted me to live in a “stable two parent family”. My adoptive-parents wanted another child and when they heard about me they decided they wanted me. I love my parents, and I would never trade them for anyone else, although I would like to know more about my biological family.

My parents were Christians so I was raised in the church but I came to know Jesus as my personal Savior when I was at camp one summer. At that moment God adopted me as his child, now that is the best adoption anyone could ask for. That is why my image for A is a cross, it represents my adoption into God's family.

Ok now… Fast-forward a few years, to when I was in my twenties… well I fell in love with my beautiful wife, and as it turns out she was adopted as well.

Now it’s our turn… it is time for us, to pay it forward… we are now looking to adopt as well.
