Quote of the Day: On Adoption

June 30, 2011 — Leave a comment

From the child of my friends who adopted a child from Ethiopia:

“Everything in America is lucky. Dogs in America are lucky.” (At that time Monti, our dog, was devouring some leftover turkey and we had been talking about possible eye surgery for him.) “Even trees in America are lucky, mom.” Trees? “Because trees in America get water and at Christmas fancy lights. Everything in America is lucky!”

Did I mention the parents already raised 3 kids (who are now adults) and THEN adopted two more at the age of 55?




And it makes me want to give more.

That quote reminds me of the graphic I posted before that “Monday Doesn’t Seem So Bad…”.


[Thanks for your faith and faithfulness, Dean, Catherine, Matt & Amanda]
