This was a question that was floating around in my mind. I just wonder what set us apart. Out of all of the waiting families, why did e-mom choose us? I asked her when we spoke with her yesterday. She said, "You were simple and down-to-earth." I like to think that we are pretty down-to-earth. She continued, "I looked at a lot of profiles that had all of these extreme vacations and they just seemed so over-the-top. Your vacations were simple and family-oriented." I told Matt that I was never more thankful for our Branson vacations and camping trips.
I just find it so ironic and just another way that God proves that He works in the small things. I remember looking at other PAP (potential adoptive parent) profiles and thinking, "We haven't been to the Great Wall of China or climbed the Mayan ruins. What if e-moms think we won't be able to give this child an extravagant lifestyle?" In the end, our family-friendly, relatively simple vacations are why we were chosen. Thank you God.
