November is National Adoption Month. Every child deserves a family, and there are kids, especially older children, waiting for their forever home. Every family who want children should have them. It’s love—not blood—that makes a family. If you have room in your heart for a child, consider adoption.
My husband and I adopted our son. He was eleven when he came to us, and our only regret was that missed his early years. We wished we could have known and loved him as a baby, as a toddler, as a first-grader … But we could not have loved him more if he were our biological child. In all the ways that matter, he is our son.
