---Brent posted this on his Facebook status this afternoon. It stirred my heart, reminding me of the why behind what we're doing. I wanted to share it here, too.---
An adopted child doesn't depreciate like a car,
doesn't wear out like clothes,
isn't short lived like a nice meal.
He or she lasts far longer then a retirement pension
and gives so much more than a 401K.
He or she DOESN'T even HAVE to have a college education to be happy,
he or she just needs you.
He or she gives far more warmth than a fur coat,
is far more worthy to root for then your favorite sports team
and is far more thankful than the movie star you dream to meet.
The adopted orphan is better to cuddle up to than your favorite book on a cold day
and is more lovable than your favorite pet.
Your orphan is far more rewarding then what you had planned before you adopted them.
Now... go get them.
What are you waiting for?
