Same Love?

If you've ever wondered if the love you have for your adopted child is the same as the one you have for your biological child, I will unequivocally scream YES! The love is the same.

There's no way to adequately explain how the "same" it is. If ever you've wondered about adoption and felt like you wouldn't love your adopted child as much or the same as your biological child, I can squash the myth now. Do NOT let that fear get in the way of you choosing the miracle of adoption!!! Actually, I wondered if I could love my biological son as much as I love my adopted kiddos, but I'm crazy like that. My kids are my kids. Period.

Enjoy a few pics of my crazy, lovable kiddos from this past week.

Goof Ball!
After his first bath at home. He screamed the entire time.
She adores her baby brother. "Mommy, I hold it!" A hundred kisses, head rubs, and holding requests every single day.

Though I was terrified about my third child, I can confidently say today that I LOVE my three kids beyond words. Sure, they drive me mad and I've lost countless hours of sleep, but I would saw off my limbs for them.

This kind of love is unmistakable.
