True Story: We were about 10 miles to Omaha and I realized I didn't bring the adoption papers with me. I freaked out and started balling my eyes out....made a few calls, got Spenser to get into my house (it may have looked like a tornado hit it....I didn't want just anyone in there) and he passed the papers off the Jerry Barton and he faxed them to the Temple for us! Whew!! Catastrophe diverted!! Boy was I grateful to Jerry. He has always had a thing for Jason though, he was adopted also as a baby, so I think he has that connection to him.
Thank you for coming along on our little journey through the unknown adoption process. It has been one of the sweetest experiences of my life. Everyday I am grateful. I am such an advocate for adoption now. It truly does bless lives. It really can right a wrong. And it is one of the most un-selfish things a person can do. I know that it can be hard. i know that it can break hearts, but I also know that hearts can heal, and that pain can ease, and I know that when you have the spirit close enough to you that you can do anything. I know this because I have been a part of this. I have seen the sadness, the heartache. I have looked into a mother's eyes that is giving her baby to me and there is pain there, there is pain in the grandparents eyes as well. I know that the biological family of Jason's loves him beyond anything. I know that they chose love over selfishness. And we are eternally grateful. Over and over again we think of them. I sometimes ache just feeling for them, but I am comforted to know that they know what they did was the right thing.
Thank you, again. We love him so much.
