Just One Word


Several of us at LWB have been learning how to Twitter, and for someone who writes stories which are always WAY too long, learning how to get a message across in 140 characters or less is quite a feat. (The rest of the team is doing much better than me at it, by the way). Today I was thinking about brevity and wondering if I would be able to sum up some of my experiences with orphaned children in just a few words. To challenge myself, I decided to only allow one word per experience. It was harder than I thought!

Give it a try. If you could only use one word to get across how you feel about adoption, what would it be? These will be the shortest comments in history. : -)

    Okay, so that's not one word, but I just couldn't quite narrow it down.

    But then I would add...awesome, blessed, and life-changing. :)

  5. I can't choose just one! Too hard of a school assignment for this woman who loves words. :-)

    But all of yours were great! Tonight, after a final goodnight hug and having them safely in bed, I have to go with GLORIOUS. Remind me of that tomorrow when TJ asks me "why?" for the 18 millionth time!
