    "Oooh, Jesus: POWERFUL"

    This was said because of the second story.

    A son had an absent father who was a pilot.
    The pilot crashed.
    Locked in his cockpit, he suffered burns.

    The son learned, visiting his father afterwards, having meaningful conversations with him, then he was important to his father.

    One day, he had to leave his father for a trip.
    The nurse had turned his father.
    The son looked back and saw his father's falling flesh from his burns.
    His father sensed his son did not want to leave him.
    "Go, you can come back."

    I remember seeing, and the smell of, my father in a similar predicament before he died.

    It was also said because of the first story about how can one love an adopted child as much as a birth child.

    The answer was because the love of the parents is about claiming the child, whether birthed or adopted.

    We CLAIM you.
    We claim you.

    Which RealJock/s claimed me?
    When will I be satisfied by those who claim me offline?

    No, not in an adoptive sense, since I am an adult but whose Love claims me; and, if there be none, I am and have been claimed by others in other roles in my life.

    The woman who spoke had two adopted daughters and a birthed son in between the adoptions. People would ask her about loving her son vs her daughters, one of whom was an Asian baby who she saw in person for the first time at Kennedy airport after having claimed her about five or six months earlier.
