I never thought adopting would be so difficult. But leave it to my beautiful wife to stress over every little step. Like everything else she has to be perfect. She always forgets that she already is. Apparently, Callen thinks we would both be pretty great parents too. I was blown away by his show of support.
Today I watched as a family crumbled under the weight of the system, parents trying to clear the name of their daughter and suffering a lost that would ultimately destroy the strongest of human beings, let alone parents. There was no place for fear only the truth.
I know our jobs are hard and I have no idea how we could be perfect parents but if Kensi and I can save just one kid from the crazy foster life Callen had, it will be worth all the hardship and stress of trying to adopt. Yeah, a million things can go wrong but I know we would make incredible parents and I want that chance. I so want to make that difference in a child’s life. Lord, I only hope the universe gives us that chance.
