Celebrating Adoption

November 11th, 2008

This family is simply amazing. Their heart for the Lord is incredible. We go to church with this family and on November 16th the adoption will be finalized. Praise God! Mark and Bethel already had 4 children but knew that God was calling them to adopt these boys, being so obedient to God’s call they are adding the boys to their family. What an adventure it has been for them, it hasn’t been easy but what a great example to all of us about being obedient to God and LISTENING to His call. I love this family so much! Emma is in our high school youth group and Joey is now in middle school, what amazing kids they are! Eli was in my Sunday school class last year, what a funny little guy! They each are so unique and special! 

The FamilyUh… Do you have ANY idea how hard it really is to get 8 people to all look at you at the same time? And smile… without getting any blinks? Well let me tell you…. hahaha.
