Adopted.

I just found this video on a blog I came across for the first time today. I met Kim and her little family at the Adoption Mini-Conference today in which I took part. I stole this video from her blog (shhh!).  Anyway, it was a great mini-conference and I met lots of wonderful people, all of whom are just as inspiring as this video. Have a look:



Oh and just so you know, my top two most favorite bloggers on this planet are also adopted, as well as one of my favorite missionary companions.  All of whom I knew far before my own life was touched by adoption.  It's amazing how each person impacts other peoples' lives.

  2. Same area you and I served. I think she came in to replace you when you got transferred? Although my memory is starting to fade, so I could be wrong. I know I sound old, eh? ;)

  3. wow. WOW. so well done..thats one of those things Im really glad I saw. Not that I ever thought that a person couldn't be amazing because they were adopted or anything but - I never thought about the concept of what a person might NOT have become if there wasn't someone who could adopt them when a birth mother couldn't, for whatever reason, keep them. Anyway..love ya, person I don't know that well but feel like I know really well..

  4. Yeah, and I never really thought about the fact that those people were given the opportunity to make something of their lives--something they might not have had if their mothers had chosen to terminate their pregnancies. It's just fascinating how far a person can go, given the chance.

    Thanks Rebecca. You and I know each other better than we know. ;)
