My old pastor adopted a bi-racial baby girl. She came out of the foster care system and has been with their family for about 6 years (adopted 4 years ago). They recently went to the doctor because of some minor kidney problems she's having. the doctor asked this whiter that white fifty something year old man if he knew if their was any kidney problems in the family and he started to tell him that he had kidney stones a few years back and was going into detail when he saw the doctor looking at him funny (he knew she was adopted). He laughed, he had honestly forgotten....

I can't forget that a woman has given me the most wonderful thing in my life. But honestly, i totally forget i didn't give birth to this child myself. She is the most spectacular little thing---every day is a blessing!!!

When I get a chance I'm going to sit and read all of this! Thanks for the comments on my blog!

You know, after only 19 months, I already sometimes forget that Snuggle Bug joined our family through adoption. I love him as much as if I had given birth to him! That's not to say that I forget his birthparents, because I never will.

Oh, and you had asked about the pictures on my blog. Yes, they're all from Ireland. They were taken by my husband during our time in Ireland to get married and honeymoon. For more details, see this post,
