This week I watched the "Home For the Holidays" special on TV. It was an hour-long show highlighting special families who have adopted children from the foster care system. Celebrities with a special connection to adoption performed. The show started with a song by Faith Hill, who was adopted. As the song started I assumed it was a song about a birth mom, since the show was about adoption, after all. But a few moments in, I realized it was a song about Mary and Joseph and birth of Jesus. The song was fantastic and if it was still on youtube, I'd post a link to her performance. Trust me when I say you are really missing out. Instead you can watch the music video which is good too. I was so moved by her performance I watched it several times that night and each time I thought, this is the exact idea that I've had about Mary and Joseph and how much the Savior has to do with adoption. Obviously he makes adoption happen, but his is a story of adoption too.
Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
