Fortune Cookies

On New Years Day of this year (2019), we were having dinner out with close friends and my (Erica's) sister – all of whom live on the West Coast and were visiting for the holiday. We had only shared our plans to adopt with family at this point, and our home study process had not yet started. The decision to adopt seemed real; but the future was (and is) so unknown.

While we both love Thai food, we often leave the fortune cookies behind and opt for a different dessert at home (ice cream!).

However, on this night (likely due to having company with us), we opened them and found these two messages that have helped us navigate this early phase of paperwork and uncertainty.

The fortunes still remain on Erica’s desk today as a reminder to keep an open mind and heart.
