As I was driving to work in downtown Nashville today, I couldn’t help but notice how beautiful my surroundings were. The sun was shining bright as far as the eye could see, and there seemed to be no place that that its light did not touch. The sky seemed to go on forever, like it was limitless. From the confines of my car, I pondered this marvel of creation., and I realized that love is limitless just like the azure blue sky spreading out before me. Love has no boundaries. Love can grow as tall and as wide as your heart is willing to let it. The only one who can put boundaries on love is me.
The day I realized that I could love any child, not just one that was conceived by me and my husband was the day that changed me forever. Life suddenly became full of so many possibilities, and I suddenly became open to them all. I feel like the Grinch in Dr. Seuss’ tale whose small heart grew three sizes one day as he stood on Mount Crumpit listening to the Whos down in Whoville singing.
So, here Rob and I are today, feverishly collecting the remaining documents for our homestudy, reading a travel book on the beautiful country of Bulgaria and its people, and I am trying to schedule my first online lesson in learning to speak Bulgarian. All of this we do because of the love for our son who is waiting for us across the ocean.
