Sometimes when I just sit and think about our adoption and our story, I am amazed! I think it is amazing how God laid this on our hearts and the way Joe and I responded at different times. I think it is amazing that we got so excited every time we got ANY little bit of information on him and how much we loved him. I think it is amazing that his birth mother made the decision to want more for her child and think it is even more amazing how God intertwined our families together! I think it is amazing that every night when I pray with Ade we pray for his Papa Abera and his birth family. I think it is amazing that God took us ALL the way to Ethiopia to get our son. I think it is amazing that I have such a deep LOVE for a woman I have never met, the woman whom I share a son. I think it is amazing that I have carried 3 children on my own and 1 adopted child and I love them all the same and would give my life for ANY of them! I think it is amazing that my children want to adopt when they get older. And I think that it is amazing that God trusted me with these 4 treasures! Amazing Love, how can it be?
