Favorite Bible Verse: “You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent. Lord my God, I will praise you forever.” Psalm 30:11-12
Favorite Adoption Story: My favorite adoption story comes from my high school volleyball coach. She and her husband chose to adopt a 7 year old girl and her newborn baby brother from foster care. When they lived with their biological parents, this little girl saved her brother’s life. One day, her mother had not been present for a few days and there was clearly something wrong with her brother. She did what only she could think to do and walked him all the way to the closest hospital a few miles away. This little baby had a high fever and probably would not have survived much longer if it was not for her brave actions. Now they have grown into incredible young adults and have so much potential and hope for what their life has in store for them.
