Adoption Is

Adoption is an oxymoron. It is as hard as it is easy. Filled with as much joy as it is sorrow. It is hot and cold simultaneously. Those who embark on the journey are no more amazing than you are or than I am. Individually we are created with our own unique purpose. When we walk in those paths, the world is an amazing place to be. Lives are changed, children and mothers are empowered.

Part of my path, my story, is the pursuit and support of foster care and adoption. Continually I meet wonderful, God-fearing families to encourage and support as their pursue their path.

Adoption is not for everyone. Learn to know the sound of God’s whisper on your heart so you can walk in the path that is meant for you. There you will find the strength and joy to live your best yes. While you do, please consider any small gift to help another family believing and chasing down theirs. And when you find yourself running hard down your path, smile, knowing you made a difference in this life too. A crowd sits behind you, unseen, cheering for you, praying for you, delighting in you. Chase your dream. There you will feel most alive.

I am only one,
But still I am one.

I cannot do everything,
But still I can do something.

And I will not let what I cannot do
Interfere with what I can do.

– Edward Everett Hale
