Favorite Bible Verse: Philippians 4:6-7
Favorite Adoption Story: Honestly, I don’t have just one. When I try to think of a specific one, so many stories flood my brain. I think of the family who didn’t think they’d ever have a child adopting a sibling group of three who had experienced horrendous abuse. I think of the baby who moved multiple homes before she was one and now is in middle school thriving. I think of the boy who was unwanted, but a family wanted him forever. I think of the teenager who just wanted a family, and the family who adopted him originally only ever wanted to adopt babies. I remember the family who desperately wanted a baby and were able to birth their adopted daughter.
