How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world. ~Anne Frank
I ran across this post yesterday, at one of my favorite sites, Birthmothers 4 Adoption, and was so excited about this wonderful story that I couldn't help but want to pass it on. It truly showcases how "spur of the moments decisions" can really impact lives. How something small can become something so large in an instant. How miscommunication can destroy beautiful things, but how education can prompt us to right our wrongs.
On National Adoption Awareness day, I wrote a post about how even though there needs to be monstrous reform in the adoption world as we know it, ultimately we are all responsible for our own actions. Click Here! to read a living, breathing example of my point. The post is called "What I've learned about Birthmoms" and it is fantastic!!!!
This post moved me to tears...not because of my situation, or what I may want, but because it reassures me that if Angie can do it, than so can others out there in her position as an Adoptive parent.
Change can, and will happen...one person at a time.
***As a note of personal growth...since having my eyes opened to my "Coveting Problem", I have been working on it A LOT!!! I read this post, (which is so inspiring to me) and at no point did the little green monster rear its head and say "Bet you wish you had this!" Instead, I simply smiled, and was glad that all of those in the story DID have that. I love making personal progress!
