Last night, Niki and I were watching some adoption-related videos in preparation for our church service next Sunday. Button was sitting with us, but she was engaged in playing with a toy.

One of the videos described how adoption was a miracle. At the end of the video, a former orphan girl asks the viewer, “Will you be part of the miracle?” Without hesitation, and with the enthusiasm that is characteristic of Button alone, she looked up and exclaimed, “Yes!”

Tears streamed out of my eyes. If ever there was a hesitation in my heart about what we’re doing, there is no more.
