Family Focus Adoption Services is not your typical adoption agency. I knew they were different, but I didn't realize how different -how cutting edge, passionate (the passion was palpable -yes! from a company in existence for 25 years) and innovative they were.
Those who spoke were phenomenal. Those who listened were captivated. All the while as I watched, I tried to put my finger on what, after twenty-five years, could energize a group of people like this.
It didn't take long before someone said it. They change lives. They've changed lives. Literally thousands of lives profoundly impacted by this group of dedicated and passionate people. Despite all the impasses, obstacles and hurdles that they encounter nearly every day, the passion to make a difference in this world -not for them but for others, drives them forward. It drives them right through the barriers they come upon. It drives them to succeed and in their world, success isn't money or power, it's providing loving caring homes for people of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds. When they succeed, they've made a difference -a permanent difference, a real difference in someone's life.
And then came my epiphany. What I envision for myself stretches beyond simply writing books people enjoy and into the successes that really matter -changing lives. If more people conducted business with a greater purpose in mind -something beyond the balance sheet, I wonder how much this world could improve? How much good could be done?
And the wheels turn a little faster...
