“There is an ancient Chinese belief which states that when a child is born an invisible red thread connects that child’s soul to all those people – present and in the future – who will play a part in that child’s life. As each birthday passes, those threads shorten and tighten, bringing closer those people who are fated to be together.”?
Even though this is an ancient legendary belief, I truly believe there is so much truth to it. Especially when it comes to adoption. Our children, brought to us through adoption, were not bound to us through blood, but we have just as strong a bond with them. Now of course we know that as Christians the “invisible threads” were God’s handy work. He draws us to adoption at just the right time for our family and ordains each foot step to bring us to our sweet child.?
Today is Father’s Day and I just want to honor those father’s in our adoption community who play such an important role in their children’s lives. Whether they are a first time father or a “veteran” father, adoption has molded their family into so much more than they could have imagined. Bonds have grown strong, and invisible red threads have tightened.
These are some of the dads of Christian Adoption Consultants. You Rock Dads! Happy Father’s Day!

“Watching Bryan become a father has been the most amazing thing I have ever experienced next to becoming a mother myself. I can’t wait to celebrate his first Father’s Day!”—- Tabitha Elam
“I can’t imagine my life without Carter. He is stronger than I will ever be. He went through so much early on in his life and you wouldn’t even know it looking at him today. And even though he is not yet walking or talking, his life speaks volumes. Adoption has made me a better person and a better father. I smile each and every time I lay eyes on him.”– Michael Manuel
These are some of the fathers of CAC. It makes my heart so happy to see these beautiful pictures of our husbands and our babies. Adoption has changed our lives as a family. It has opened so many doors and stretched our hearts beyond measure. Adoption has made us all a family.
