I had a particularly challenging obedience issue with Isaiah last night.

After the process of discipline and restoration, it was time for bed.

As I was tucking him in the bed and reminding him that he belongs to our family forever, he asked me a question,
"Mom, if I become a baby again, will you still choose me?"

Once again, he needs to be constantly reminded of his security in our family.

It makes my heart sad to see that pain in his heart.

My bio kids would not even think to ask that question.

As an adopted child, Isaiah has to struggle with the pain and loss in his heart on a daily basis.

I reminded him that just like God chose me as His child, that he is chosen by us. We love him. We treasure him. Our life would not be the same without him. God decided he was my son before he was ever born!


  1. Isaiah and Laila are SO BLESSED to have you and Rick as their mommy and daddy. May they always feel your love and God's love through you two! Blessings!!!

  2. He is going to grow up to be such a strong leader. I know that you can't help but love that adorable face with his spunky attitude even on the hard days. :)

  3. I will say some prayers for sweet Isaiah that he will feel like he belongs and know your love is forever!
