I can't adopt because . . .
People let me give you a little bit of reality -
Do you see this ~
That's right I - the mom who has adopted FOUR children (almost) did not grow my own potato's, scrub them, boil them, and then mash them.
This is NOT organic.
Along with it I made a meatloaf from my favorite cookbook
- the college students survival guide.
You think I am lying don't you or just spewed pop all over your computer
- I AM NOT!!
I have had to double the recipe - and then because I didn't start until late I realized the centers weren't completely cooked through and so I served the ends to my starving kids and continued heating the rest.
The worst part - we haven't even started school yet - I don't have an excuse.
I will admit it - I shouldn't have a hamster some days never mind all these kids. I read blog after blog of mom's grinding their own flour, baking their own bread (and encase your confused I buy Sara Lee whole grain WHITE bread).
The point is you don't have to be perfect to adopt.
You don't have to be the best homemaker,
the best cook,
ALL you have to be is OPEN.
Because I guarantee that those waiting kids do not CARE!
they don't have warm enough clothes,
enough food to eat,
or the love of a family.
Your failings are still 100 times better than the best person currently in their lives.
if you are hearing the call - PLEASE stop with the excuses.
