In the midst of a busy holiday season Nightlight is excited share a few of the things our staff is thankful for this year, including the thousands of adoptive families who have decided to open their hearts and homes to orphans around the world.

Dan: I am thankful that God is wiser than I, and that he has frustrated my own plans so he can accomplish his own.
Rhonda: I’m thankful for my family and friends, a job and volunteer work I enjoy, pets who are always excited to see me, a home in sunny California and good health!
Kristen: This year I am especially thankful that God, in his faithful character, just seems to work everything out for good, even when it feels difficult along the way!
Kelly: I am continually thankful and awed by the men and women who selflessly place their babies or embryos for adoption.

Amy: I am thankful for my family. Continue reading
