As I have said in the past, I forget how 'different' our family is.
I forget we look different, and I even forget there are a lot of us.
I forget, that is, until I see someone looking at us something like this....
and then I remember...
and it makes me sad.
It makes me sad that it is considered odd to see white people, black people and Hispanic people come together as one.
It makes me sad that our family is seen as a rarity just because we love big and love many.
It makes me sad that it is odd to put someones LIFE before our personal WEALTH.
It makes me sad that people believe that loving a child somehow equals them making a sacrifice.
Because, I long for the day when ALL children are seen as the blessing God intended them to be.
I long for the day when it is no longer odd to love someone who looks nothing like you, as God intended it to be.
I long for the day when we put Him before Us in everything we do- as it should be.
