A few weeks ago, Facebook celebrated Sibling Day. I am raising an only child, so I was a little perplexed about his future as a possible non sibling. We are a couple that cannot get pregnant naturally, but adoption is challenging and I cannot imagine going through that process again. I will not say never…but I will say that God would have to put it on our heart for us to consider it. Now, we do believe that God has great things in store for us if he is an only child, but we both came from families with siblings and we both experience the bliss of being an aunt and uncle so we want those things for him.
Thank God he has it.
He has biological siblings that were also blessed through adoption. In fact, in March we got to meet one of his biological brothers. Amazing how you can love a stranger because he has the blood/genes of your son; I love him because he is part of Callen. I pray for his well being because I know that his life directly affects my son.
We got to see them play, hug, laugh, scream, eat, share and learn together. Callen loved being a little brother and accepted all the help that his older brother could give. This relationship gives me peace. Knowing that we can create a relationship where he can experience brotherhood if he wants to is a blessing. I look forward to seeing what the future has in store for not just them, but for us as well.
