I believe that God works in mysterious ways; and prayer can very well change things. At the age of three months I was introduced to two wonderful people that would change my life for the better. After long nights of prayer; and turning down two previous children; my new parents’ prayer would soon be answered. My biological mom was eighteen and already had a five year old when she decided to give me up for adoption. I thank her for making such a strong decision to give birth to me and for me to have a better opportunity at life. Three hundred and sixty one days later the woman who gave birth to me gave birth to my brother who was also adopted by the same two magnificent people. The story almost sounds too good to be true, well that is the way I feel. Words can not express the love I have for my parents, and the love they have shown for me. I once was curious to know who my mother was to see if we had any of the same traits, but how would I approach her, what would I say to her, for I already have an astonishing mother that can not be replaced. I have always believed that everything happens for a reason, and I feel that my parents were predestined for me. I tend to forget majority of the time that I was even adopted, there is not one single part of me that does not feel whole with my parents. Writing this has made me realize how blessed and privileged I am to be given such a wonderful chance at life. There are many times I take my parents for granted, but this project has made me realize there are many that desire and would do anything to be given the opportunity I have. Everyday, I should thank God for allowing me to experience what many long for everyday; love.
