Last year at this time Jim and I were checking our cell phones and e-mail at what seemed like every minute, for news from our adoption agency. Our hearts were expectant. Our minds raced with thoughts of "what will our daughter look like?" "How old will she be?" We didn't know then, that in a matter of 2 weeks the questions would be answered and our blurry future come would into clear focus. As we approach the one year anniversary of receiving our referral, I sit stupefied and small, as I think of the mighty God who saw fit for us to become the parents of Karolina. So, it was no surprise that this new video from Mark Hall left me in a puddle of tears. I just wanted to share it with you as yet another example of God's goodness, and the sweet rewards of being the parent of an adopted child. We continue to pray for all the children in Karolina's orphanage, those who are awaiting adoption, and the parents and families on the journey to adoption, and orphans that were never "claimed" by a family.
Matthew 18:5, “Whoever receives a child in My name, receives Me.”
This video was made in support of an upcoming pro-life, pro-adoption film "October Baby." The movie opens on March 23. Check out the trailer here:
