OK, if you didn't read the last post, scroll down and read it! Read it especially if you need a good laugh!
But now, I want to post something especially sweet that the girls say. I mean sweet to the point I want to cry. (NO comments how I cry at everything, thank you!)
When we come home, we drive past the front of our house to go around and park in the garage. Every time we get close to home, the girls will say, "There is our home!" I will say, "Yes, it's our house!" They BOTH immediately say, "It's not a house! It's our HOME!"
I choose to believe that they are passionate about calling it our home because it's the safest, loving place to be. And every time they say it, it warms my heart.
Yes, girls. It's our home.
We're so thankful God blessed us with a home that has space for kids. Does your home have space? Wouldn't it be awesome to have a kiddo change YOUR regular old house into a home? Adoption is a great way to make that happen! So many kids just want a place to call home, and a family to love them. You just might have THE house they need! This might just sound like an adoption plug, but trust me, my friends. I NEVER EVER want just a plain old house again. I'll take a home any time!
P.S. We treasure our home because it's the first place the girls ever had a family in. Friends of ours, Linny and Dw recently lost their special log cabin to a fire. They are an adoptive family and are willing to be mommy and daddy to others (because 10 isn't enough!!! HEHEH). If you want to help, click the button to the left. We all need a place to call home. If you want to be inspired, challenged, and encouraged by them, just read their blog.
