Beautiful Life

Hey child up and go; A big world is out there waiting for us to live in every day. Outside you will find, there is love all around you; Takes you, makes you wanna' say; That it's a beautiful life and it's a beautiful world and it's a beautiful time to be here, to be here, to be here. -Fisher

Adoption is....

Adoption is Paperwork.  Mountains of it.  An accordion file box is a required supply for the adoptive family.  Someone should market them just for adoptive families with the tabs all filled out....Agency Contracts, USCIS application, Homestudy, Dossier Documents, Adoption Education, Book Lists, Names, Medical Definitions, Referral Information, Travel Information, Province Information....

Adoption is Acronyms.  PAP, SN, NSN, WC, PA, LOI, USCIS, DTC, LID, LOA, TA, CCAA.  What does it all mean? You learn fast, trust me!

Adoption is heartache.  Seeing a sea of faces on the waiting lists and knowing they all need a family. 

Adoption is love.  Reaching out to love a child born in your heart.  Falling in love with grainy photographs and minuscule amounts of information.
