If you have any free time at all today, take a few minutes and watch this video. It chronicles a couple’s journey from the airport to the hospital to meet their son for the first time, and it’s one of the most moving things I’ve ever seen!! I love what they say about every mile they cross is closing the distance between them and their son. They say that God didn’t want them to wait all those years for a baby just arbitrarily. No, it was that they were waiting for their son. This boy who God chose for their family. I talk to adoptive families all the time and this is a common theme. I know we believe it with our own children – these are the babies God meant for our family. I’d do all the waiting again – all of the tears, all of the anxious nights and paperwork and fundraising and on-our-knees praying because it led us to exactly the place we were meant to be. Like this family says, what a privilege to, in a small way, live out the gospel. Love that so much!! Enjoy!! (And grab a few tissues!! 😉
