Bitter to Sweet

image by rickz

"Adoption starts from hard things - an unwed mother and a childless couple. But the good news is that it does not have to end in hard things! Why? Because of the Atonement. Through the atonement, sorrow is turned into joy (see John 16:20) and 'lamentations into the praise and thanksgiving unto the Lord Jesus Christ, [our] Redeemer' (3 Nephi 10:10). Through the Atonement, the bitter things of adoption are made sweet as families become eternal."
- Bonnie D. Parkin
