I love how before we heard God calling us to adopt, we barely knew anyone who had adopted children. We "knew of" several families but it's amazing how God has now placed friends in our lives who are bringing babies home from all over this world. Soon there will be two less fatherless children in this world and two sweet friends for our baby girl when she comes home.
Our friends, Jason and Liz will be traveling to South Korea in just a few short weeks to bring home their sweet girl. Also, our new friends the Dreyfus family, will be traveling to Ethiopia for court and then hopefully a quick return trip to bring home their baby boy. These will be our first airport parties and I pray there are many, many more in the future. Please pray for both of these families, their babies and their birth mothers.
Here is my SIL and I with Liz and Anna at the conference a few weeks ago.
We thank God every day that He has called us to this journey and I'm also thankful that He has connected us with dear friends that share our same passion. Every time He brings someone else into our lives that desire to serve the least of these, I feel like we are linking arms with yet one more family. I'm sensing God is forming a huge army to bring justice to these 147 million precious children of His.... anybody else gettin that feeling?
