11 Sept 2011
While waiting for the children to get out of Sunday School this morning I took some time to write.
I'm adopted.  Not in the sense our kids were adopted, but adopted no less - by God.  I was able to share this with my son last night, when I told him that God / Jesus adopted me when I was about 5 years old.  That Jesus sought me, paid the price to bring me home to be in his family forever.  Thus it is my connection to my children, somewhat of a shared experience even if on different planes. 

Alone and unwanted,
Sought as a child.
Open arms, loving heart.
Welcomed to a family was I.

Older now I realize,
What love did for me.
Turning now I begin,
Seeking a child.

Alone and unwanted,
A child like me I see.
Open arms, loving heart.
Welcome home my child.
