I had an incredible opportunity today to share the story of our family. I was asked to share our story for a friend's high school Child Development class. The topics I was asked to address were adoption and birth defects.

Besides the fact that I love to talk about my family, I also loved sharing with the students how much God has changed my heart since Carter was born. To share how very important each human life is; to not be afraid of a special needs diagnosis; to have compassion on those who deserve our compassion- it is a worthy message!

Having a special needs child is hard at times, but it is NOT the beginning of a depressing, dreary journey. If you let God show you the way, it is the doorway to a whole new world filled with exciting adventures and big stories. Bigger than you would have planned or hoped.
