But It Is Worth It
Still, after all the steps to get there, you would do it all again. Adoption mirrors birth in that way. Every discomfort of pregnancy, all the pains of labor, and the moment you have your baby in your arms you know that it was all worth it. We spend our lives as parents stretching ourselves and extending our hearts (and sanity) more than we would have ever thought possible, and we never wonder if it was worth it. We know it is. Adoption is hard and messy and insanely beautiful.
