“Daddy, I want to believe of Jesus.”

Our six-year-old adopted daughter woke us up New Year’s morning with these precious words. She had been home nine months. “Wow!” I thought, as my not-yet-healed heart lifted and tears rolled down my cheeks.

A lot of the “whys” were answered that morning. Why adopt? Why us? Why this particular girl? Why did the process take so long? Why the emotional turmoil? Why were there so many obstacles? . . . Why are there orphans?

We invite you along as we attempt to unravel the answers to these questions. Please join in the discussion. We hope you participate with your stories of struggles and joys—weeping and rejoicing.

We promise that we do not have all of the answers, but we cling to God’s word as we live the life God has called us to “being confident of this, that he who began a good work in [us] will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Phil 1:6

For His Glory! Barb :-)
