Throughout the adoption process, you get asked a lot of questions by the adoption agency. Some are very personal and others are more financial based questions about your income, monthly bills and assets. One of the personal questions asked is, “How important is it that your child look like you?”. I guess they ask this for several reasons, but to be honest, I’m kind of glad our child will not look like us. No offense to my wonderful family and the years of fine genetics they have passed down, but we’re all a little short and have chunky thighs, no matter how much we work out. From the other side of my family, I have been honored with receiving dark circles under my eyes and fine, thin hair. All these qualities, combined with my husband’s line of short folks and other family traits, would make for an interesting mix. Would I like to know what that would actually look like? Yes, but I’m excited about seeing the combination that God creates for us. We are just so excited about becoming parents and completing our family that we don’t care about appearances. God was not specific when He said that we should care for widows and orphans, and Mike and I have not been specific either when asked what we want our child to look like.
