I Love You All the Same . . . Book Giveaway!

How Do I Love Thee? (Sonnet 43)

Elizabeth Barrett Browning, 1806 - 1861

 How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

Love . . .

First, there was my husband. Tomorrow is our 14th wedding anniversary. 19 years together, 14 years married and my love has only grown with each passing day. Then, when God lead us down the path to adoption, there were moments when I wondered how my love would grow for our adopted children. Well, it's as simple as this precious little book. Love grows with bonding, and it is an amazing journey to watch the love between us and our adoptive children unfold.  We love them all the same and know that we will love any future children God has for us all the same. It's how love works! 

This month I have a copy of a precious book called "I Love You All the Same" to giveaway. This sweet book assures three little bears who are all different colors and from different backgrounds that their Mama and Papa Bear love all three of them the same, differences and all! What a sweet message to share with all your children, adopted or biological.
