adopting: a new adventure

learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause. Isaiah 1:17

Adoption has always been something awesome that other people are doing. Lots of great people we know have adopted children into their families. After Kyle’s trip to Haiti, my heart was torn up by the pictures of genuine orphans he encountered and the desire to bring one of these little ones into our family was born. A small, quiet desire that would grow through various means of grace and Divine encouragement.

A few days ago we booked plane tickets to Atlanta to attend the Together for Adoption conference. We hope that this will be the launching pad for us as we pursue bringing a child into our family through adoption. We don’t know from where yet – maybe Africa, maybe here in the U.S. Probably under 3 or 4. But we need a place to start in the overwhelming world of referrals and agencies and mountains of paperwork, so this is where we’re starting – this conference. This week, Noel Piper is giving away 6 registrations for the conference on her blog. Check it out!

And please pray with us as we start down this road. Most of all, that God would prepare our hearts for this adventure and that we would have our faith multiplied on this crazy ride.

my life is full and beautiful because the Lord of all creation has seen fit to take me as His own. I have a wondeful husband, a sweet puppy, a beautiful baby boy, a lovely house in a small town, and two great jobs that allow me to mostly work from home. I throw the occasional temper tantrum, love good food, bake drool-worthy treats, and have a love affair with French-pressed coffee and vanilla lattes.
