A Family of Our Own

This morning a friend gave me the gift of a poem he wrote about our adoption story. It's so beautiful I just had to share. Thank you Jamie!

A Family of Our Own

Seems distant now-
That it would be just us.
Yet we settled into that mind.

There were flashes of hope.
Just flashes.
And wanting-

Then a moment.

A moment of Grandeur,
One call-
One gift-
Four souls transcended.

A welcoming of growing,
The extension of a home.
A love we never thought we’d know…

And a family of our own.
