Why we adopt...

When I look at you I don't see...
More mouths to feed,
more bills to pay,
more worries,
more pains,
more hassles,
more cost,
more burdens
or more work.

What I see is...
A chance,
a hope,
a promise,
a choice,
a person,
a dream,
a life,
a blessing,
a gift.
While my hands may be full, they will never, ever be as full as my heart.
