Adoption Day Montages

Video montages of adoption always warm my heart.

Erin Bohn December 20, 2014

I love adoption. I think most adoptive parents do. Of course we don’t love the painful history that many of our children have suffered through. The fact that for a child adoption can mean loosing their country, or community, or friends, or birth family is heartbreaking. But I love the fact that in spite of the inevitable loss, a family is able to be created.

Whenever I’m feeling a bit sad about the world, I do a video search using the terms “adoption day montage.” The results always warm my heart. I’ve never met most of the families in the videos. I don’t know their names or where they’re from. I don’t know the struggles they endured that likely took years and finally culminated in one single day. But I don’t need to know those things to see love, to feel happiness, and to know that somewhere out there a beautiful new family has been formed.
