I am shamelessly stealing this.
A friend on Facebook posted the sweetest conversation between himself and his son and I really think that it is worth sharing.
If it warms the heart of even one reader out there as it did mine I will stand by my theft.
Father – I really love you
Son – I know
Father – How do you know?
Son – I have known it since I saw you for the first time.
Our children knowing that we love them is so important to us adoptive parents and is surely not something that we can simply take for granted. I guess we all reassure our children constantly and hope that little by little our words and our actions have an impact on them and soon they will understand the depth of the love and indeed fully believe it.
This father has clearly done a wonderful job of that.
