“We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.” – Joseph Campbell
The best decisions that I have ever made in my life have involved letting go of things not meant for me and opening myself up to the possibility of things greater. All the love that I have found–from my husband, from my son–is the direct result of me letting go, listening to my heart despite all the noise, and trusting that there was something better in store.
Ten years ago, I would never have imagined my life as it is right now. I thought I had it all planned out. But today, in this moment, I am the happiest that I have ever been and can’t imagine being anywhere else, and with anyone else, in the world. Not a day goes by where I do not look at my little boy and feel like the luckiest woman in the world.
All because I realized that my heart was trying to tell me something. And I listened.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful adoption story and this quote. This is exactly how I feel at this moment! Still waiting for our family to grow–however means that may be–but we are definitely open to all sorts of possibilities! 🙂
Thanks for your comment. Best of luck to you!
