Before we ever considered adoption, we received countless compliments that our children would be so beautiful with a mix of two cultures, and I loved it. I would often talk about how I hope that our children inherit my husband’s beautiful thick hair, or my blue eyes.
I would picture them in my mind of having my husband’s beautiful skin, with my facial expressions. I imagined looking at our children and noticing the similarities of both of our family characteristics.
I think most couples do this as they dream of their future children.
Since preparing for our adoption, I’ve realized that although our children may never have my nose, or my husband’s eyes, there are so many attributes and characteristics I hope this child will gain from our family.
I hope that our child will grow up appreciating family traditions.
I am optimistic that our child will inherit Hailame’s sense of humor and positive outlook on life.
I guarantee that this child will grow up loving music (just like his parents!)
I’m sure this child will want to be a clogger like their mom… and DAD!
I hope that this child will love to serve others.
I’m planning on this sweet baby loving to spend time with grandparents and cousins.
I hope that this child will grow to have Hailame’s pure goodness and kindness.
As a homemaker, I pray our child will grow up loving to create.
I know this child will grow up knowing they are so loved and adored by us.
This child may not look like me or my husband, but this child will grow up with our hearts.
love, hannah jane
