Yesterday I came across this You Tube video and immidiatley shared it over at Trinity Heart but it’s such a powerful and beautiful video that I had to share it here to.
Caleb’s parents (all four of them) must be so very proud of the insightful, humorous and mature way that he looks at his adopted status, they have clearly all played a roll in raising him well. If Ava can grow up to have this kind of insight then I will know we have done our jobs well.

Caleb makes a number of powerful statements about adoption throughout his speech but the one that touched me the most was this:
“There is no one way to build a family. Family is more than blood and shared genes. It’s relationships. It’s about finding out who we care about the most and loving them as much as we can.”
