During our open house (which no one showed up for)My husband had appointment. The girls and I went to the local indoor play area to pass an hour. There was a woman who started chatting with me about kids and she saw all three of mine who happen to look so completely different, she asked about that and I said with permission from the kids that they were all adopted. She looked at me with a very strange expression and said, “You mean you love them like your own children?” I said, “Yes they are my children in every way.” “You mean they call you and your husband mom and dad?” I said yes and they are my children.” I explained our story a bit about the loss of our children and following surgery and the adoptions themselves. She still was unable to grasp taking in a child not of her womb. She truly did not get it. I told her that I was blessed by God because had I not adopted we would not have children. What a generous God we have. I lost three to miscarriage and God gave me 3 other children who are so wonderfully different.
Thank you God!
