I had no idea it existed…..
Not until I brought the boy home.
There is an unexplainable magic that comes with adopted children.
Strange, wonderful things happen…..
and unexpectedly, other’s share their stories….
There’s a bond.
So I guess I should have been expecting it with The Girl…..
But I had forgotten about the Magic.
Until last Friday.
I had taken The Girl on her first walk with “The Ladies” and we were back in our building waiting for the elevator.
There were two other people waiting.
I had never seen them before as our building is pretty big.
The woman said with a smile as she looked in to the stroller….”Did you just have a baby? My you look wonderful.”
I took off my sunglasses, smiled back and said “technically….and thank you….she’s adopted.”
The woman’s face lit up and her eyes welled with tears….”I’m adopted!” she said.
At this point the man next to her perked up and said “You won’t believe this, but I’m adopted too.”
And there you have it.
Turns out the woman lives in the apartment directly above us and the man several floors up.
The magic of adoption.
So Brooke and I rode up in the elevator with our new friends….
and I felt like the odd man out.
