Today I am thankful

I am thankful that I was born and I am thankful for the family that raised me.  You see, 28 years ago tomorrow I was born to a 15 year old child, and given to a family who desperately wanted to raise a little girl.  There may have been many times that were trying, but in the end, we became a family.
I mention all of this because I was sent a new book on adoption.  It was touching, illuminating.  I would certainly recommend it to anyone who has been touched by adoption.
The book is Adopted Ed by Darren Warren.  I'll admit to you, some of the rhymes were a bit forced, but the illustrations are adorable.  The book was written with heart and it shows.
