The Power of a Name

Heidi has an interesting article about adoption. She says:

In the end, however, it's not about the sacrifice of the parent, but the needs of the child. No matter what the circumstances are that a child is brought into the world, the moment his life begins the paramount question is not, "What do I want?" but, "What does this child need?" Not "What is convenient?" but "What is in my child's best interest?" Share

Amen! That was always my day to day credo. Meeeting their needs was not always convenient to me, but was necessary for them, and I am not referring to childish whims. We have to decern. When I strayed from that it caused long term problems.
