Counting our blessings…

The international adoption world has been rocked by the story of the Russian boy who was sent back to Russia on a plane, by himself, by his adoptive mom who apparently was overwhelmed by his violent attachment disorder…I listened to the Diane Rehm Show today on my way in to work, and listened to stories of adoptive parents of kids who either never adjusted completely to their new environment, or took at least 6 months to feel “bonded” to their parents, and I feel so completely blessed with the gift of our two boys who have fallen in love with us, and we with them, in the space of two months!!  It was really love at first sight, for me, and I never expected that…I really thought that I would feel like their “baby-sitter”, and not like their “mom”.  I’m so grateful to them, and to the Universe, or to the Divine, or whatever power may be out there (even if there may be Nothing)…for giving me and Ron this amazing Gift…
