“Every child born into the world is a new thought of God; an ever-fresh and radiant possibility.”
-Kate Douglas Wiggin
This is the quote we used for our daughter’s adoption announcement back in 2010. We picked it because it reminded us that despite our daughter’s not-so-lucky start to life, and despite basically being abandoned; her life is one of hope and possibility. She is a gift from the Lord, and He has wonderful things in store for her.
I wanted to share it to remind fellow parents, parents-to-be, or those struggling to become parents that we all have lives of radiant possibility. Our children or future children also have the opportunities to live lives of radiance. Despite what we are going through or have been through, we have the ability to live the kind of life that breathes love.
The Lord knew His plan for our daughter. He scripted her tiny little life right into our home. He knows His plan for us. All of us were on His mind when He was on the cross, and we are on His mind today.
I hope this blesses you and lifts you up during your struggles. I hope you see your life as being one with God-given radiance, hope, and possibility!
