A Simple Request

Sometimes we have big wishes.  Lots of wants.  Lots of "gimmes."  Lots of desires.

With Adoptive Family
I stumbled upon this article on Yahoo News, and was taken aback by a single wish of a young man.

A family.

That's all this 19 year old wanted.

A family.

Kind of makes me appreciate mine, as dysfunctional, twisted, and painful for me to be a part of, at least they want me.

Read the whole article.  You won't regret it.


  1. Well, now I'm all choked up. That is so great for him. That family knows what it's all about. And did you notice his sister? They look just like each other! That is wonderful!

  2. Truly awesome. Yes, it certainly does make me even more grateful for my family. Prayers do get answered.

  3. Wasn't it amazing? I am hoping to find some more of these "smile stories" and share them, as they really do restore my faith in humanity.......


So? What do you think?
