Camille's Children-Thirty One Miracles and Counting

I met a wonderful new friend named Athena last night. She told me about a book that she was reading. It's a first person story (from the mom's viewpoint) of a woman and her husband that adopted 31 Down Syndrome kids. Amazing! I'm buying this book right away! Here's a quote that Athena highlighted for me.

"Love isn't a pound of meat that can be weighted or a truckload of bricks that can be counted. Love isn't finite and measureable, bound by logical rules. Love is illogical and irrational. It is bottomless. There is plenty to go around, whether there are two children or thirty-one children. -Camille Geraldi's response to a criticism that she couldn't possibly love thirty one-children well.

The title of this book is the title of this blog.

I read that book before we adopted, just one of the many we read when deciding to follow God's plan for us. I wish she'd write another.
