Sometimes You Need Not Look Further..

.. Than Your Own Backyard...

I was very touched by the poem that I posted earlier. It hit the nail right on the head and really spoke right to my heart. I searched around for a few pictures on the web to post with it, but nothing really struck me as worth adding. So, I left it be.

Walking across the yard this evening, what did I see? A beautiful moon rising as the sun set into the Rockies behind me. I nodded to myself, smiling. Sometimes exactly what we search for is right here all along. It may not be as we pictured it (or planned it) but it's just what we need. All we have to do is take a quiet moment, stand still and look. I was grateful to God for that moment and wondered if our babies were looking up at beautiful clouds and moon this evening, too. I hugged them in my heart.

Then I ran like a crazy woman to the house to find the camera...

I found your blog through a comment you left on another blog. Your avatar grabbed my attention because I am an adoptee who has adopted. Ironically both my childrens' birthmother were also adopted.

Anyway, I just wanted to pop over and say Hi and let you know that you are not alone. I have posted both of our adoption journeys on my blog..the links are on the right side of the main page.

If you have any questions or need to vent to someone...come over and visit...I have been in your shoes!!
