Adoption · Aiden's Adoption

Life Before Aiden

Before Aiden:
1. I didn’t have an addiction to buying cute sweaters off every sale rack I walk by.
2. I didn’t have an ache in my heart when I lie in bed at night wishing he was in the next room tucked sweetly in bed.
3. I didn’t know my heart could carry love so deeply.
4. I didn’t wonder how on earth my heart will handle it the first time his chubby fingers touch my face.
5. I didn’t feel each night at dinner, each family story time, each cuddle in bed with the kids, each trip to the store… that someone is missing.
6. I didn’t have a clue how much the Father loved me until I began to love Aiden. He has taken my weak human love for this precious boy and has instructed my heart tenderly into the knowledge of His great love for me.

  1. So well said. Somethings missing… that’s how we felt at Christmas this year. It’s amazing how much I love those two boys I’ve never met. Like you said, I didn’t know I was capable of that kind of love.

    God is good.

  2. All these thoughts are so true, especially number 6. His love for us his “adopted” children is boundless! I too have learned that powerful lesson in the adoption of our sons! God Bless you today, Tracie~
