In January I went away to a MomLife Retreat, and the wonderful Tracey Eyster scheduled in lots of time for prayer and quiet. WOW. I haven’t had that in years! On the flight to Naples, Florida, I read the book Kisses for Katie. (If you haven’t read it, it’s a must-read!)
During my quiet time as I read the Bible, God reminded me that He’s called us to care for the orphans and the widows. And He pressed it in my heart that John and I need to adopt more kids. My logical mind told me this was crazy, but there was a knowing peace in my heart. On a phone call that night—even before I mentioned one thing to John about another adoption—he told me God had been speaking the same thing to him. How amazing is that?!
We’re still on our adoption journey . . . and I also have a passion for more people to adopt. There are SO MANY kids who need forever families!
