Maybe you read my blog and know nothing about adoption. Maybe you have never parented a child that is complicated and interesting and tough and amazing and tiring. Maybe you have never dealt with Attachment Disorder and don't know anything about it. Maybe you don't even believe special needs exist.
But if you do, if you DO understand what its like, you will understand that when my son handed me this Valentine I promptly burst into tears. He had made it secretly and on his own, with no prompting from anyone. He wasn't expecting something in return or hoping to get out of trouble. He thought of it and made it on his own from candy he had received at school. My son made us a Valentine because he wanted to show us he loves us.
So if you don't know anything about adoption or have never parented a complicated, interesting, tough, amazing and tiring child it might just look like a piece of cardboard with some candy glued on it, but to ME, its the most beautiful Valentine in the Whole World.
