On Sunday, Pastor Ben and Janet talked out their adoption process. One of the things they mentioned was the element of choice that is inherent with adoption. It’s pretty unique. The way I see it, Lauri and I have spent some time designing our son. One of our favorite things about him is his deafness. We’ve both always been pretty amazed with the deaf community. We’ve always thought it would be wonderful to be a part of it. I especially love how beautiful the language is that they use.
Some people are a little nervous to use the phrase “special need,” but I want you to know that I think it’s great. There’s no denying that Lauri and I have a special need. Our son will be just the person to fill that need.
