• The Beauty of Adoption

    It absolutely does mean that I teach him, show him, and help him experience Jesus for who He is at the expense of everything else in my life.
  • Why Is Adoption So Hard?

    These are just a few of the reasons that adoption is really hard. It Should Be! You're not buying a hamster or giving home to a dog. You are committing the rest of your life, your finances, and your love to another human that you are completely responsible for.
  • Adoption: Desire vs. Cost

  • Being Wanted

    We are not only wanted...We are loved, we are cared for, we are adopted!
  • Ezekyal is a Bush!

    The Coronavirus is attacking many aspects of our lives not to mention our physical well-being. One of the things that could easily be effected is our ability to take care of children who do not have families to take care of them.

  • Joy in All Circumstances

    A lot of things came together recently that led me to write this blog. First of all, as I’m sure you already know, the word “joy” is thrown around a lot during the Christmas season. Think about your favorite Christmas song…it probably has the word “joy” in it at least once. If you read Luke […]
