This was a super sweet thing my son, Strider (4), said today.
As we drove down 1st Street I said, "There is the house I lived in before I was adopted."
My niece, Naomi (7) responds, "You were adopted?"
I quickly say, "Yes, when I was close to your age."
Then she asks, "Why were you adopted?"
I haven't had to answer that one in years. How do I properly answer that question? I blurted out, "Because nobody wanted me."
Strider chimes in, "It was because I wanted you, Mom."
Powerful words. I needed to hear them.
