For this week's Illustration Friday theme of Adoption, I chose to illustrate my family. Well, at least the kids in my family. Each of us are adopted, except for James, who is our foster brother. Being part of an adopted family is such a blessing. It is wonderful to know that you were chosen. Chosen by your parents, and chosen by God to be part of your family. I feel doubly blessed to be adopted into God's family.
