    Well, I am crying now and can’t start school! Seriously, Elijah was watching this video clip with me too, and asking some neat questions. (He does not understand, though, why you would choose girls!) I know you know this, but God is deeply touching and moving in so many hearts as He moves you guys through this journey; you will probably never know the full extent of the “ripple effect.” Even children who are seeing God move in your family; seeds are being planted.

    Did you listen to the Steven Curtis Chapman Christmas CD? It’s the same song from this video clip. Now I will cry even more whenever I hear that song!

“He said He loves me, Mommy,” my daughter Hope told me as I tucked her in, her words whispered with her hand to her mouth and cupped around my ear. Apparently, it was a secret. And I remembered her first dance recital, not long after we’d adopted her. She had practiced her routine in and out of class for a…

At 40, What I Would Say to My Twenty Year-Old Self

My diploma was still in an unopened manilla envelope on my apartment desk when I stood in front of a crowd of 300 sets of smiling eyes to tell them about what I’d committed to doing for the rest of my life. Though I didn’t say it in so many words, at twenty-two I knew I wanted to change the…
