Day 6 of the Thankfulness and Gratitude Journey Challenge – the prompt for today is “Gift”. It can be a gift you have given or one you have been given.
The gift I am most thankful for in my life is the gift of adoption. Because one wonderful young woman decided to bless my husband and I, we went from a couple to a family and our lives have forever been changed for the better. We have so many beautiful moments of happiness and joy that have come from this one gift. I will always be thankful and will never be able to express the depth of my gratitude.
November is National Adoption Awareness Month, it is a way to promote awareness of and celebrate adoptions. Here is a photo of the moment Riley was placed in our arms….I couldn’t stop crying I was so happy and overwhelmed with joy and emotion!
This next photo is of us on Adoption Day when Riley’s Adoption into our family was finalized….sometimes referred to as “Gotcha Day”
Close your eyes and take a minute to think about a gift that you have either received or given that you are thankful for….what popped into your mind? Tell me about it in the comments section.
