Here’s a little note on the adoption anniversary of our youngest son. Just a reminder that he’s not a burden.
A few nights ago, our oldest two kiddos were just not into it (meaning getting along, playing nice, communicating with us, etc). My awesome husband suggested I take our youngest son out to eat and that he would hold down the fort with our two older, cranky kids.
As my young son and I scarfed down our meal, I delighted in his whimsy. He is quite the character, says the most random things and dreams of being a rock star one day (insert my fear of him living in our basement as an adult).
Anyway!! As I sat and listened to him, I realized how lucky we are to have him as our son. We hadn’t planned on adopting again but life throws us a curveball and we chose to take the pitch. We hit the ball out of the park with this kid. I’m so glad we did.
Five years ago today, our adoption was finalized. As we celebrate Thanksgiving today, we are thankful for being his parents. Children are a blessing, not a burden (even on the hard days).
P.S. I’m totally fine with him being a rock star one day as long as he can pay his own bills…
