Day by day, step by step. That’s what our adoption journey is. Some families have an easier time adapting. Some have a harder. Our journey is our own and it is getting easier.

Today, I remembered the “why”.

Because they didn’t ask to be orphans.

Because they deserve a family…a home. A Christmas tree with gifts picked out for them. A birthday cake, their own shoes, and enough in their bellies.

Because they shouldn’t have to fight for their education, rights, a bed.

Because Jesus asked.
