This is adoption.
This is adoption.

Jessica Cunha sent me these pictures of her son Benjamin.
I first posted about her last year when she adopted him.
She was so excited.
And she wanted to show me what he looks like now.

She wrote:

We adopted our son benjamin last year.
I just wanted to send you an updated picture of him since you shared our story when we finalized.

I can't believe how fast he is growing!
He's fourteen months and has fourteen teeth!!
time needs to slow down!

Maybe one day we will run into each other and you can meet him in person!

I love everything about adoption.

For those who don't know, my youngest daughter is adopted.
She also happens to be black.

We didn't set out to adopt a black child.
It just worked out that way.
And I love every second of it.

Except when she plays the damn rap music in the car.
That drives me insane.
She loves Drake.

I'm always battling her to put on some Earth Wind and Fire or Stevie Wonder or Clyde Carson.
Now that's some REAL music.


Every night when I walk into her room after work I just stare at her for a few moments as she's sleeping.
And I always think the same thing:

She doesn't look like me.
I don't look like her.
But it doesn't matter.
She's my daughter.
And I'm her dad.
And that's a beautiful thing.

Congratulations Jessica.
Your son looks so happy.
You and your husband changed the course of his life.

THAT'S what adoption is all about.
