You Must Be An Adoptive Parent If...

1. The fact that there are 143 million children
without a parent to kiss them goodnight has made you lose sleep.
`
2. You realize DNA has nothing to do with love & family.
`
3. You can't watch Adoption Stories on TLC without sobbing.
`
4. The fact that, if 7% of Christians adopted 1 child
there would be no orphans in the world, is convicting to you.
`
5. You spend free time surfing blogs about families
who've experienced the blessing of adoption.
`
6. It drives you crazy when people ask you
about adopted child's "real" parents.
`
7. You've been "pregnant" with your adoptive child longer
than it takes an elephant to give birth.(2 years!)
`
8. You'd no idea how you'd afford to adopt,
but stepped out in faith anyway, knowing He'd provide. (& He does!)
`
9. You've taken an airplane half-way around the world
with a child you just met.
`
10. You believe God's heart's for adoption.
`
11. You realize that welcoming a child into your heart & family
is one of the most important legacies you could ever leave on this earth.
`
12. You know what the word "Dossier" means
& you can actually pronounce it correctly!
`
13. You've welcomed a social worker into
the most private parts of your life.
`
14. You shudder when people say your child's so lucky that you adopted them,
knowing full well you're the blessed one to have him or her in your life.


I saw this on a friends blog and had to steal it. So very, very true.
