My husband and I watched Lion tonight. If you don’t know it, its a movie staring Dev Patel, from Slum Dog Millionaire (one of my favorites). Its about a 5 year old boy who gets separated from his family. Separated meaning thousands of miles separated, and eventually adopted by a couple in Australia. I cried from beginning to end. I just felt so horrible for that mother who lost her baby, and didn’t know if he was alive or dead. A mother who loved her son, and looked for him and wanted him home. I feel like that sometimes. Like looking for my child who isn’t coming home. I miss him and think about him every day. I miss my unborn baby and then man he could have grown into. That movie hit a hard spot with me.
My husband and I have talked about adoption in the future. Who knows when it will happen, but we both feel a need to proved a family for a child who doesn’t have one. I hope one day we will be good parents wether we adopt or have children naturally. I have been so blessed to come from such a loving family I can only hope to provide the same for a child who needs one.
