Our Adoption Journey

Daph and I recently began rejoicing in the news that she is pregnant with our third child! This news also has some sadness to it because we have been in the adoption thought process for years. It felt as though we were getting really close to making our adoption official.

Then God surprised us! God’s surprises are good surprises. We made our plans, God changed them. When things don’t go as planned, we can trust that God knows best.

The heart of man plans his way, but the LORD establishes his steps. –Proverbs 16:9

Our plan is to adopt. The steps we’re taking to get there is not what we expected. We’re in the middle of this journey now. Our child is due in October. That means in order to adopt we still have to wait another year and half after that. WAIT.

So while we’re waiting, we’re still praying and hurting for orphans around the world. What can we do about their plight? It seems so monumental. Maybe someone reading this will also consider their role for children without families. Consider the video below.
