Thank you for your kind comment, Lavender. Anna is definitely an old soul. Since they began to talk, she and Cameron both have constantly surprised me with their depth of insight. I had scraps of paper laying all around the house as they were growing up, where I had written down the amazing things they said. I'm sure most mothers are enthralled with everything their children do, but I think those of us who were blessed with our children through adoption have a clearer understanding of what a true gift a child is.
When I look back at how hard we tried to conceive a child -- so many years of emotional pain with all the medical procedures. I tried so hard to be in control, when actually God had a much better plan. We were tested to our limit, and then rewarded with who we consider to be the two finest children on the planet! That's part of the reason I wrote the book. I want those who are traveling the heartbreaking journey of infertility to know that if they take a different path, they might just find the children of their dreams.
