Open Adoption Bloggers have started a new tradition, a Blog Hop where everyone can answer a quick question and then we all comment on each other’s posts. This blog hop is asking what our favorite quote is. For me that’s an easy one:
“An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet regardless of time, place, or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but it will never break.”
I’ve always felt in my life that you meet people for a reason, and when I found this quote from a Chinese proverb it became my mantra.
Meeting people is a fairly easy thing to do but taking these new people you meet and adding them to your life is another thing. I felt this was even more true during our journey to parenthood. I felt the professionals we met and worked with and the community of people that eventually became our friends were the world telling us that we were all destined to meet. Our daughter’s birth mothers and family were another form of destiny to me … the way we have blended together as a family confirms to me our destiny.
