We have a winner!

The winner for our contest is Becky! Here is what she wrote on her blog:

My invisible Red Thread

Right now I’m watching The Invisible Red Thread, that aired a few days ago on TV. I’m thankful that I stumbled on it through my WordPress Reader. It’s a documentary about a girl who travels back to where she was born and then adopted by a family from Toronto.

Hearing Vivian’s “What if” questions made me sad: wondering what her life would be like if she’d been adopted by another family, if she was never given up and remained in China, thinking about all of the questions I’ll have to answer or my daughter will be thinking, and not asking, as she grows up.

Something that I’ve come to realize and firmly believe as I’ve gotten older, and since adopting, is that although blood may technically be thicker than water, biology is essentially irrelevant when it comes to love and forming bonds within a family.

I really hope one day that my daughter, husband and I can travel back there – if she wishes – and we can explore China once gain.

Definitely had a lump in my throat at the end of the film when Vivian and her dad came back home and her mom ran to greet her with a big hug.

Thanks to all of you who participated or shared about The Invisible Red Thread!
