Since childhood, Billy and I have both adored the idea of adoption, specifically from a foreign country. Especially since I got the privilege of growing up on the mission field, we cannot deny the tug it has on our hearts. Even before we got married, it was something we discussed.
We're grateful to be surrounded by people who feel called to adopt.
One of my favorite people, Chelsie, just adopted domestically, and it has been amazing to watch their story unfold.
Also, our friends Trey and Ashton are in the process of adopting internationally right now, and we have loved praying for them and knowing their hearts (you can see their blog here).
Recently, Ashton posted this video on Facebook, and I thought it was wonderful. If you have the time, you should watch it. Even if you know you should never adopt, I beg you to examine just how you can support the cause. Prayer changes things, especially when it aligns with God's heartbeat. Pray for these children and for the families God's chosen to adopt them.
