The Red Thread ?

well it is something I read in other adoptive parent writings. It is based on an old Chinese saying:

“An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet,
regardless of time, place, or circumstance.
The thread may stretch or tangle,
but it will never break.”

Originally I believe the saying was about lovers who were destined to meet, but obviously it is perfect for adoptive families. It is nice to believe that there was an invisble force connecting adoptive families, making it their destiny to meet.

I like the idea and I think it brings some comfort to think that as we travel along the ups and downs of the adoptive path we are actually tugging at the red thread and slowly pulling our future towards us.
