Adoption. A child born to another woman calls me Mom. The depth of the tragedy and the magnitude of the privilege are not lost on me.

Adoption Sign - Not Flesh of My Flesh

As children grow, they may wonder why their mommy doesn't have a picture of her belly growing, them safely tucked inside. Why daddy isn't kissing mommy's belly, like they were kissing them. This is the time to remind them that they didn't grow in Mommy's belly, but instead they grew in Mommy and Daddy's hearts. ❤️ //
