Open your Mind to Thinking Differently – Why Adoption Changed Mine

ChangeWe are creatures of habit and are a product of our environment. As small children we were exposed to people and situations that left a huge impression on who we are and how we live our lives and conduct business to this very day. Yes we can change but change is difficult even for those of us that love to embrace new things and tackle difficult projects. Our paths and our vision is usually limited to a narrow spectrum of comfort that our past has influenced. You can change that by opening up to new things.

Years ago when adoption became one of the few options for me to have children in my life, I initially resisted it and told myself I could never love an adopted child as much as my own genetic children. Boy was I wrong!! Three adopted children later, two from Canada and one from Ethiopia and I am an amazingly proud father and one of the biggest boosters of adoption as a way of helping others and making our mark in being better citizens of this crazy world.

So embrace change, try new things, it’s amazing what you will discover not only about the change but about yourself. Adoption has made me a better person and has also allowed me to approach business differently; with a truly open mind. Imagine what we can do, if we truly open our minds.
