I was adopted from Colombia when I was 5 months old, and I can honestly say that at that moment I became blessed. My parents provided me with the unconditional love, guidance, structure, and support that a child needs. I am forever grateful to them. Being adopted does not mean that you were unwanted; it means that you are so special that you were chosen.
