Adoption Thoughts: Dec 2007
Adoption by MacKenzie:
Adoption has changed me because when you adopt it gives a
really good feeling in your heart. The feeling feels like
youíve done something right and that you should do it again
because so many children are out there in the world who
donít have any families.
Like when we adopted Mylie I felt like I was truly a big
sister. A big sister is fun to be because you have this
little sister thatís littler than you and you pretty much
never have been a big person in your family before. And now
that youíre a big sister you can actually do stuff thatís
older and take care of your little sister or brother.
When our family adopted Mylie it felt like it was this whole
new world that was going to change my old world. And I was
a little bit scared because I was afraid she wouldnít like
us at all. But as days came and went it felt like Mylie was
trusting me and Dani more and more. And now, she really
likes us and I love her and am so happy she is in our
Before, I was kind of mean sometimes. Now that we adopted
Mylie I am becoming a kind hearted person because when I
first saw Mylie I felt this good feeling in my heart. God
helped me through everything that I was worried about and
helped me be as kind as I could.
And now that we can have our first Christmas together, I am
so happy because it will be really fun with a two year old
that doesnít know anything about Christmas. Now she can
start learning about Christmas and Jesus, born on Christmas
If I could I would say to people, ďThe best thing to do,
probably, is to adopt a child because like I said before
there are so many children in the world that need help or
are very sick and need families. Iím glad that Mylie is in
our family now!
