In April 2014 we welcomed Esther Grace into our family. Our domestic process started in April 2012, so we waited a full 2 years before God had the right one for us. God has blessed us with a precious little girl and her amazing birthmom whom we love. Open adoption was the perfect choice for us. We had a great experience with Bethany Adoption Services (www.bethany.org).
We have chosen adoption because we realize that through Christ, God has adopted us into His family. Galatians 4:4,5 says, “But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.”
A tremendous blessing for us when we began this process was Dr. Russell Moore’s book, Adopted for Life (http://www.russellmoore.com/books/).
I’d love to answer more questions about adoption. It was the hardest yet best thing our family has ever journeyed together.
