Family - Part II

Cancer. It makes my stomach turn to think about it. I have to admit Kristin caught my eye and heart at first sight. But, wouldn't it be irresponsible to possibly leave my wife with one more mouth to feed if IT came back. I delayed considering until Saturday.

There are people we can talk to who have adopted older children. Complete strangers... Ok. I'll talk.

Doll feels less nervous about older children. In all her wisdom she asks "Are we going to live our lives in fear of cancer?" Did IT teach us anything? What is really important to us? Family.

We make the call to the agency. I ask questions. I know the answers. Acceptance. Peace. Excitement. Fear.
