I was talking with the kids today about the significance of today's date my eldest son decided that if you make a wish at 10pm on October 10th, 2010 that it will come true. So here is trying:
My wish is that our family stays healthy, happy and safe for as long as possible and that everything works out (soon) for us to make a huge difference in the life of one very special little girl who we are waiting to join us, and just maybe we will really luck out and be able to sell our house without losing money and find a deal on a new house that will be big enough for our growing family plus have room to spare for guests to stay. And if I could throw a few more things in there, I wish that we will find jobs closure to where we want to live without taking a paycut and on the side I wish that I will be able to find the direction that I have been seeking to continue my child-psych consultation work with orphanages in Haiti and Africa. And, I wish that MORE families are inspired to adopt, and to do this with the education and bravery that they will need because seriously there are to many kids waiting for their forever family, at every corner of the world. I also wish that birth parents who are able to care for their children do so rather then being manipulated into relinquishing their rights without knowing what they are getting into. And if I could also throw one more really important thing in there, please stop all mistreatment of children in this world. There are no excuses for why this cannot happen. Maybe I should also wish for the eyes and hearts of every adult in this world to be opened, opened to helping and loving those less fortunate than them, to start living for the greater good rather than themselves.
O.k, that is not so much to ask for now is it?
