This season of the year is special.  The timing of events has me celebrating mother's day, our wedding anniversary, and the first day we ever heard about the boys all within a few weeks of each other.  There's something beautiful about the days coming together in the way that they do.

"I cannot go back to where I was before.  In most parts of most days, I am like any other mother with her children.  But adoption has expanded my relationships and my world.  It has changed the shape of my heart, stretching it through vulnerability and difficulty- and also through joy.  Adoption has made me uncomfortable.  It has made me anxious and sad.  But it also has made me overflow with gratitude and love.  And it has drawn me near to God."  -K Wong
