What I have learned about home, by being adopted

Blackness is like life without a home, and it gets stronger until love comes in and makes hope and hope makes joy that fills each room.

We all need love, joy, hope and happiness. We all need a home. Each of us needs a place to come together. We gather together, sometimes in the same room and sometimes in different rooms, and still we know that we are safe and loved.

Home is a special place. Its like love that shines through each light, you heart grows and the love spreads. Home is that light. Home is that hope. Home is that Love. Home is all the things together, all the things gathered up.

My house is where I belong and love is how I knew I was home.
