A Heart for Adoption

Since the beginning of our marriage, Harrison and I have always felt the Lord's leading to adopt. A desire to care for a child that wouldn't otherwise have a loving home to go to. We are so excited because we feel now is the right time for us to adopt.

My mind is already starting to envision those baby quilts and knitting I will be doing in preparation. We are both so very excited to start the adoption process. This will definitely be an adventure and a lesson in patience while we trudge through all the paperwork and legal processes. But we know it will all be worth it, when we hold that tiny baby God saved just for us in our arms. What a joyous day that will be.
