Ponder this

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, 
while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” 
Lao Tzu, Father of Taoism

Yes! I completely agree. Scott's love definitely gives me strength to go through this entire adoption process. And my love for Seoul Baby gives me courage every day to answer the uncomfortable questions, make the difficult decisions, and confront my fears.

Mr. Tzu is a smart guy! What do you think?

Please discuss.


  1. thank you for stopping by from ICLW!!!
    I've always been interested in the adoption process because it's something we might eventually pursue, so thank you for coming by, i plan on reading your story.

  2. That quote is so true. Love is an amazing force. I love Lao Tzu's quotes - very insightful.

  3. One of my favorite songs is 'Walk by Faith" Jeremy Camp. It's not really an adoption song but the song I go to when I need that push of faith. It's so true we really do need to give it all up to God but often I forget.

    Good luck, I look forward to reading of our progress.

  4. Hi Jen,

    Thanks for coming by! We didn't know much about the adoption process before diving in! Much of what I've learned has been from wonderful people I've met online and through blogs. Feel free to ask away when the time is right for you.
