"Take an action each day that alleviates suffering in the world. Bring light into darkness."
-Angeles Arrien

Here is the test to find whether your mission on earth is finished:
If you're alive, it isn't.
--- Richard Bach

I have come to realize more and more that the greatest disease and the greatest suffering is to be unwanted, unloved, uncared for, to be shunned by everybody, to be just nobody [to no one]
--Mother Teresa

We were not separated at your birth.
It was the moment at which we began our journey toward each other

"I have no fear of losing my life- If I have to save a koala or a crocodile or a kangaroo or a snake,mate, I will save it"- Steve Irwin

The untimely death of Steve Irwin (AKA The Crocodile Hunter and my 11 year old Daughters favorite mentor and role model) has really got me thinking. He lived his life with such passion and purpose. You could hear the enthusiasm and passion in his voice every time he spoke. He had a mission and purpose on this earth and he was willing to put his life on the line to fulfill that mission. How very amazing.

How many of us really live our life with purpose EVERYDAY? How many of us just take up precious space on this planet.

I know this adoption is part of my purpose. I can feel it deep down in my heart and my gut. This process is a lot more challenging then I thought. Basically we are going to be put under a microscope and judged by people (some who have never even met us) who probably do not have the same thoughts or beliefs as us. Of course they do not have the same thoughts and beliefs as us because our differences are what makes us all unique is scary.

We have suffered through some losses but no loss will be as hard as if not able to fulfill
what we know so strongly is part of our purpose.
