Adoption

"As you watch us struggle and celebrate and cry and flail, we also want you to know that adoption is beautiful, and a thousand times we’ve looked at each other and said, “What if we would’ve said no?” God invited us into something monumental and lovely, and we would’ve missed endless moments of glory had we walked away. We need you during these difficult months of waiting and transitioning, but we also hope you see that we serve a faithful God who heals and actually sets the lonely in families free, just like He said He would. And even through the tears and tantrums, we look at our children and marvel that God counted us worthy to raise them. We are humbled. We’ve been gifted with a very holy task." -Jen Hatmaker
