Meant to Be

I think a lot of adoptive parents feel the same way about how their children were "meant to be" a part of their family. I have just another example of why Frog was definitely meant to be my son. He came up to me yesterday with a DVD in his hand.

Frog: More? More Chitty Chitty Bang Bang?

Me: You want to watch Chitty Chitty Bang Bang?

Frog: Mmm hmm. singing Chitty bang bang chitty chitty bang bang....chitty chitty bang bang we love you!


  1. Christie, I don't know you except from your blog and being a fellow Team Deseret member. My children are not adopted, but many of my friends are and without a doubt we know that that is where they were meant to be. For some, its that they look the spitting image of their parents; for others, whose race is different, the similarities seem to stand out even more. It just more purely confirms to me that HF had a plan and knows what he's doing - we're just here for the ride and if we're lucky - we're truly blessed beyond our wildest imaginations around the way. There is a quote by Willa Cather (don't know who she is) "Where there is great love, there are always miracles" - which sums up how my adoptive parents and adopted children feel - great love.

    Just a thought! Now, give them a hug and a kiss and get knitting on that snowdrop shawl.

  2. Willa Cather is an author from Nebraska. We're actually reading one of her books for our book club tonight. I love that quote!

    Thanks for the comment and dropping by my blog!

  3. I was just going to say how appropriate a quote from Willa Cather is...she is Nebraska baby!! What are you reading? I loved My Antonia, didn't love the other one.

    That is pretty funny about Frog. My bio daughter could be anyones child...she is SOOO NOT me. My adopted son is my little clone (except the race thing). He is me.

    The comment above is very sweet and a nice affirmation. Good Luck w/ the knitting.

  4. We're reading "O, Pioneers" and I haven't even started!

  5. OM goodness i love that movie! uh oh now i'm going to be singing it all day maybe we'll watch it...
    your kids are so special!
