One year ago today, God woke me up in the wee hours of the morning and placed the calling of adoption on my heart. One year ago today, I couldn't even imagine that in less than a year, I would be the mother to 2 children from Africa. Now, I can't even imagine my life or our family without Isaiah and Laila. It has been a year of miracles, blessings, and challenges. I have seen God work in ways I never thought He could. He has broken me and strengthened me and I am a different person than I was. I am grateful, thankful, and don't ever want to be complacent in this journey. It seems only appropriate to share a quote that has resonated with my heart for the last 3 years in relation to Swaziland, Africa. Many of you already know it, but it is worth repeating.
The place where God calls you is the place where
your deep gladness and the world's deep hunger meet.
God's calling has brought deep gladness to my heart!!!
I am living my dream by being a wife to the most amazing man in the world and the mom of 6 beautiful children - 4 biological and 2 recently adopted from Southern Africa. It is my desire to follow Christ in all that I do. My life is not my own. I am moved and forever changed by my experiences in Africa. My husband and I often say our life could be a reality show. I am offering you a glimpse into our adventures. Welcome to my World!!
