Adoption Has Changed My Kids

Lincoln and I were driving home from Joe's work. We take lovely country roads and always enjoy checking on our favorite animals. Pretty close to home we pass a great country home with 20 or so sheep in the front yard. At that house we have a choice to drive right by the home or turn down another street and miss the sheep altogether.

Today, we decided to take the way of the sheep. We were giggling about how chubby the sheep have become over the winter. We noticed two horses hanging out with the sheep, which is a bit unusual.

Lincoln wondered why the horses were in with the sheep.

I replied, "I don't know, Bud."

Lincoln thought for a while and then said, "Mom. I think the horses adopted the sheep. The sheep needed a mommy and a daddy so the horses decided to adopt them."

Beautiful.
