Room On The Plate

Don't you just love it when someone can so eloquently sum up what you've been feeling in song or a poem, or in my case, a blog, in just a few short sentences?! That's exactly what just happened to me as I sat down to catch up on some blog reading, specifically Elizabeth's most recent post on her blog, Finding Mercy.

Here's what she had to say in regards to announcing that she and her husband are planning to adopt another child...

"My lap is full, my plate feels full.  The reality is though, that my plate felt full when I just had Evelyn.  And it was.  Then we added Annie and then we added Abraham, and I realized how much I could actually fit on that plate. 

So it's with that, that I say we've decided that there's room on the plate, and in our family, for more.  Not because we love chaos and are fully rested and feel totally up for this, but because it's what we want for us and our family.  It's what we want for our family long term."

Couldn't have said it better myself. But until that day comes, we will continue to wait and

Hope you all had a fabulous Memorial Weekend!
