For those who don't know, I am a chiropractor. In my profession, I come into contact with so many different people and I am continually blessed (and sometimes when I least expect it). Last week, I had a new patient who is only in town for a few months. A first impression would tell you that he is a "rough" man who has seen some tough times. He was coming in for some back pain, and he was ready to do what it takes to truly heal his body. As I was looking over his paperwork, his family history section was crossed out and the word "Adopted" was written across all of the lines.
As I took his history, we came to the family history, and I said, "I see that you were adopted."
He replied (in his thick Southern accent), "Yep, no family history for you."
For whatever reason, I decided to share with this man whom I just met five minutes before, "My husband and I are actually in the process of adopting a baby."
All at once, the tone of his voice changed and he said, "God could not have found better parents for me and I know it will be the same for any baby that enters your family. You will be a blessing in any child's life."
I seriously almost cried. God has granted us so many blessings and sometimes they come from the most unexpected places.
