A dad's opinion of adoption

A wonderful Christian family has FINALLY gotten their son!  Through all the paperwork, horrible court appearances and time spent in an unfamiliar country, they never wavered on what their journey was...... to adopt Aaron - a precious boy in Eastern Europe waiting to be taken home to a family of his very own.
This post found on the Nalle family's blog is written by Aaron's adoptive father and what a great story it is.  It is one of the few times I have gotten to read the thoughts of an adoptive dad who has opened his heart to a special needs child. 

As he mentions in his writings, it is usually the moms who are the crusaders and blog-keepers of this cause.  We women are the ones who put pen to paper, or in this case fingers to the keyboard, and write away advocating for these children and sharing our efforts to rescue them from a life of hopelessness.  It is great to hear this dad share how adopting this child, and the journey their family took to get there, has changed his life as well as enriching his relationship with God. 

Please take just a moment to visit this family, look at the precious face of their new son and read this father's words of love and wisdom gained from his incredible devotion to saving the life of a child.
