Are you like me and feel a rather instant connection to someone who has adopted, is a Birth Parent or was adopted?
I do and today I am so thankful for that instant bond from this special shared world.
Today Spencer had a hydrocele repaired. The surgery is pretty much exactly like a hernia repair. I of course was nervous about it all but especially the fact that they would be cutting him and the anesthesia scared me. But once again the Lord blessed us with tender mercies all around. Spencer's incredible Anesthesiologist recently adopted two babies through LDS Family Services and was very excited about our upcoming adoption and said to us "I will treat him as my own." Music to a Mother's ears.
After I kissed Spencer and waved bye bye we turned down the long hall and I said to Brad
"I Love Adoption!"
Tonight I was nervous about the what type of nurse would have the night shift....hoping she would be as good as the day nurses have been. It turns out I was (at one point) in the same ward with Spencer's night nurse and not only did she adopt through LDS Family Services last year ...she herself and her hubby were adopted into their families.
Adoption, how I love you!!!!!
I am so thankful for the Lord's tender mercies and I am so thankful to be infertile!!!
One of life's great gifts is the ability to connect with another soul.
Adoption connects many!
