Yesterday, Matt and I had the opportunity to share briefly about our adoption with our church. Yesterday was orphan Sunday, so we were asked to share our story and spend time praying for orphans from stage. (We were far down the line of people asked, but it was cool anyway!)
I can't explain the JOY and passion that I felt while hearing Matt talking with the Lord about orphans, adoption, and the parts we play. His heart has changed so much, and I'm beyond thankful! It's further proof that GOD is doing this... not us.
We are so grateful to be part of this church. There are 3 other families who have adopted in our church. Of those 3 families, we've been in Community Group with two of them. What a blessing! And one other family (that we know of!) is starting the process. It means so much that we have this support system... that our child(ren) won't be the only one(s) who don't look like Mommy & Daddy. :)
Even more awesome is that our church is doing a HUGE event in December to raise awareness and funds for local orphanages. Check out the video below.
