Small Acts Of Kindness

Kindness in words creates confidence.

Kindness in thinking creates profoundness.

Kindness in giving creates love.


Today... Kindness in giving helped create a loving family.

Chris and I have been met with many acts of kindness along our adoption journey... and today we received another one.

As we approach the final days until our adoption will be put in front of a judge, we've had to have several additional documents notarized. Today we received a new set and our attorney's office wasn't able to get us in, so we ended up going to a place in town that would do it.

We were greeted by a lady who stayed seating behind the counter. Chris told her we needed to have a couple documents notarized and she asked us if Kensington, who was being an angel in her car seat, was our child. We smiled and raised the car seat to eye level and Kensi let out one huge smile. After looking at the documents, she realized it was our adoption paperwork. She told us where to sign and date, did what she needed to do, and returned the papers back to us, "This is for her." We thought it was a question, "This is for her?" so we answered "yes". With a smile, "This is for her. It's on me. I wish you all the very best of luck. You two have one adorable little girl there."

Why yes... yes we do.

Awwe that's sweet. It's also a wonderful and powerful statement about how accepting she is of gay adoption.
This is very cool.
