the_red_thread“There’s an ancient Chinese belief that an invisible, unbreakable red thread connects all who are destined to be together.”

This quote begins a most touching story on adoption by Grace Lin called The Red Thread. I happened upon it at my daughter’s school library this weekend. I was quite literally moved to tears. This is yet another kind of love. A love that takes a couple across many miles, through many challenges to be with a baby who tugs on on their hearts, whose absence creates a pain that nothing but being together will sate.

You don’t have to be adoptive parents to feel that red thread, right? I feel it when I see my boy’s face light up as he first spots me in the carpool line. I feel it when it’s a “Daddy night” and they are not sleeping in my bed. I feel it I see a white puffy cloud and wonder what my daughter would say it looks like… that little tug on my heart that reminds me that we are connected. Always.

The Red Thread. A must read… for every family.
